This is exactly what it says it is a very meat-tasting sauce. Do NOT expect a traditional/strong or fresh tomato flavor from this recipe. I should have known from the three bouillion and beef broth but I never made spaghetti sauce before so now I know. I love the simplicity of this recipe but I would leave out the bouillion and the beef broth because I prefer spaghetti sauce with a strong/fresh tomato taste. I love that it's a thick sauce so I think it's a good recipe just not enough tomato flavor for me. I left out the pepperoni when I made this and also used fresh mushrooms instead of canned. Thanks for sharing this recipe.:)
THE BEST! I was making meatballs so I made this sauce without the meats. I basically followed the recipe; only changes I made were to add additional 1 tablespoon of minced garlic (as garlic lover) add additional 2 (15 oz) cans of tomato sauce (sauce was too thick) add 1 (28 oz) can of pureed tomatoes (sauce was too thick) add additional teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes (for extra heat) add 2 teaspoons of soy sauce (for flavor and deep color) replace honey for the sugar and add additional 1 tablespoon of honey (for little bit of sweetness). My husband and 8 other guests raved! Easy simple and delicious! Thanks for the great recipe!
This definitely gets 5 stars! This is my new meat sauce recipe from now on. I do make some changes: I use italian turkey sausage instead of pork, I omit pepperoni, I use a pack of fresh mushrooms, 1 whole green bell pepper, 1 whole red bell pepper, add a small can of extra tomato sauce, and definitely more garlic. I freeze most of a batch and have super-quick dinners when I need it.
This is a great sauce. So meaty! I used fresh tomatoes from the garden omitted the mushrooms added an extra TBS. of sugar and added 1c. grated zucchini. Oh it is GOOD! It does make a lot. I was able to freeze 3 quart bags of sauce after we ate dinner. The kids love it too!:)
I tried this recipe and was pleasantly surprised. After mixing all of the ingredients, before simmering, the taste was good but not great. 2 hours of cooking dramatically improves this result so don't shortcut yourself.
This really is a great sauce it was my first attempt at doing it homemade vs. the jar. It wasn't as tomato-ey as I hoped so I didn't find it to be an outstanding sauce for spaghetti but I froze leftovers and it made an awesome lasagna (my family raved). I am happy with most of the ingredients but here are some alterations for my tastes. I will only use 1 bay leaf and 1 beef bouillon cube next time as well as use 3 cans of tomato sauce 1 can of puree use red wine in place of beef broth. I doubled the herbs and garlic because I like a lot of flavor. After reading another review I may also try adding some soy sauce.
