Sauce (for anything)

Standard

So as I said in my last post, I’m on a cooking kick this morning. I love to cook and sometimes I get started and I start packing things in the freezer so I have it ready without having to pull my hair out. This is a pretty universal sauce. I use it with my spaghetti, macaroni, and even my green beans and rice.  I usually double up when doing this but I will give the single batch recipe here. If you need double the amount just double the ingredients. So here is my make ahead sauce that I put in my freezer:

1 lb of beef (turkey can be used)
1/2 of bell pepper
1 med onions
2 tbsp of turmeric
1 tbsp of basil
1 can of tomato past
1 – 2 cups of water
6 mushrooms (optional)
oil to fry the beef
Salt and pepper to taste

1. grate up the onions and bell pepper
2. add the onions and bell pepper to the skillet. crumble and brown the beef in the skillet with the onions and bell pepper
3. add the turmeric, basil, salt, to the meat mixture in the skillet
4. fry together until meat is completely browned and onions and bell peppers are well fried
5. add tomato paste and mushrooms and lightly fry
6. add 1-2 cups of water. Turn down to med heat and allow to simmer for 30-45 mins checking periodically to make sure water does not completely cook off.
