Low Carb Luxury Recipe!
Basic Meat Sauce

  • 5 pounds ground beef
  • 6 small onions, chopped
  • 2 small carrots, chopped
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons minced parsley
  • 1 (15-ounce) can no sugar added tomato purée
  • 1 (8-ounce) can no sugar added tomato sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock or both
  • salt and pepper to taste

In an 8-quart stock pan, sauté chopped onions and carrots in olive oil until limp but not brown. Stir in minced parsley and let it go a bit.

Transfer all to a big bowl and set aside. Brown ground beef in the pot in 1 1/2 -pound batches, transferring to the bowl of vegetables. Add tomato purée, tomato sauce, and chicken stock to the pot and stir to loosen the good stuff stuck to the bottom.

Return everything to the pot and simmer, uncovered, about 30 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cool to room temperature, then package in 2- or 3-cup freezer containers. Date, label, and freeze.

Makes about 4 quarts.   7.8 net grams of carbohydrate per 1/2 cup serving.
