This homemade Meat Sauce is rich, meaty, juicy and beats anything you’ll get from a jar.

It’s an easy one-pot recipe made from caramelized onions, garlic and two kinds of meat that are slowly simmered with crushed tomatoes and dried seasoning.


– Olive Oil – Beef – Italian Sausage – Tomatoes – Sugar

In a large dutch oven over medium heat, add the olive oil. Once shimmering, add the diced onion and stir to coat.


Once the onions are caramelized, add the garlic and saute for about 2 minutes, until translucent.


Add the ground beef and sausage, using a spoon to break the meat into small pieces. Add ½ cup of water and cook until there is no more pink, or about 5-7 minutes.


Once the meat is cooked, add the crushed tomatoes, sugar, salt, Italian seasoning, black pepper, and parmesan rind.


Remove the meat sauce from the heat and let cool slightly before removing the Parmesan rind.
