Crock Pot Spaghetti Sauce


2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

1 Pound Bulk Italian Sausage

1 Pound Lean Ground Beef

½ Pound Ground Pork

2 Small Onions, Chopped

1 Teaspoon Dried Italian Herb Seasoning

3 Teaspoons Garlic Powder

½ Teaspoon Dried Marjoram

1 (29 Ounce) Can Tomato Sauce

1 (14.5 Ounce) Can Italian-Style Diced Tomatoes

1 (14.5 Ounce) Can Italian-Style Stewed Tomatoes

1 (6 Ounce) Can Tomato Paste

2 Teaspoons Garlic Powder

½ Teaspoon Dried Oregano

¼ Teaspoon Dried Thyme Leaves

¼ Teaspoon Dried Basil

1 Tablespoon White Sugar


Step 1 Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add Italian sausage and onion; cook and stir until sausage is browned, about 10 minutes. Transfer sausage and onions to a slow cooker.

Step 2 Add ground beef and pork to the same skillet over medium heat; season with Italian seasoning, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, and marjoram. Cook and stir until beef is browned and crumbly, about 10 minutes. Transfer ground beef into a large slow cooker and toss meat to combine.

Step 3 Stir in tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, stewed tomatoes, tomato paste, 3 teaspoons garlic powder, oregano, thyme, and basil. Fold all to combine. Cover and cook on Low for 8 hours. Stir in sugar 15 minutes before serving. Serves 8; serve over your favorite pasta. Toss pasta with a little sauce before serving so flavors can marry in the pasta. Then put rest of the sauce on top. Serve with garlic bread, Caprese salad and lemonade.
