Red Tomato Sauce Recipe

The beauty of this recipe is that you can adjust and modify and not be perfect with the quantity and it is still good! The quantity in this recipe is good for a gaggle of actors. Making less is easy as the ratio of ingredients is not critical. 

1. Fry the ground beef in rice bran oil over hight heat, cook fully, even with some crispy bits. Salt and pepper. Ideally this is all the salt and pepper you will need. You can always add more later when serving.

2. Add onions - Start here if you are making a sauce without beef.

3. Cook together as onions "clear" and become translucent

4. Reduce heat to medium and add garlic and continue to stir

5. As the garlic permeates the steam add bell peppers and the mushrooms.

6. Stir / toss until mushrooms change color and soften a bit

7. Add cans of tomatoes

8. Fill one can with water and transfer the water from one can to another to get the remaining tomato juice. Add the water to the pot.

9. Cover and heat on medium and stir occasionally and bring to a bubbly boil.

10. Add maple syrup or sugar 

11. Reduce heat to low or simmer and cover leaving a crack to allow for some steam to escape.

12. Cook for as long as you can stirring occasionaly reducing the liquid to produce a thicker sauce.

Often the sauce gets better over time, add a little water if needed. Simmering for 8 hours or more is ideal. Though, rarely will sauce not get "sampled" by someone almost immediatly.
