Your best "meat sauce" recipe

darrentran87 | Feb 17, 2013 10:02 AM

I would call myself an intermediate home cook.

HOWEVER, I have yet to make my own spaghetti meat sauce!

What is your idea of the perfect meat sauce?

I've seen suggestions recommending to use crushed tomatoes, and some recommending whole tomatoes. This, I'm sure is a preferential thing.

I've seen suggestions that recommend using chunks of brisket or chuck meat instead of ground beef. I've seen suggestions saying that they like using a combination of pork, beef and veal.

Also, what herbs and seasonings do you like to put into your sauce?

Correct me if i'm wrong - I'm under the impression meat sauce is a tomato based sauce with meat. I'm looking for ideas tailored to eating this sauce with spaghetti pasta.

Thank you.
