    This beef pasta sauce is a family favourite and a real crowd pleaser. I sometimes add a little more garlic.

    I have used this for years. I have played around with it a little and found that a teaspoon of sugar cuts the acidity of the tomatoes. And if you want to make it taste a little richer, stir in a quarter cup of cream before serving. Also, I drain grease off the beef before adding any vegetables, that way you aren't pouring out all your garlic/onion flavour!  -  14 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    I love this recipe and it has become my favorite with a couple of small changes. I like my sauce more creamy with the tomatoes less chunky, so I use "crushed" instead of diced tomatoes. I love mushrooms, so I also add a 7 ounce jar (drained) of button mushrooms (usually Pennsylvania Dutchman available at my regular grocery). The button type mushrooms are good because they are easy to see in the sauce and can be left off the spoon for those eaters who don't like them.  -  27 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Easy, painless, and tastes good. I will def use as a base recipe again. Maybe it's in the asian in me that likes to marinate everything... but if you marinate the beef in 2 tb of soy sauce, 1 tsp sugar, 2 tsp of Worcestershire sauce and a 1/4 of salt for 15 minutes before sauteing...it adds a world of difference to the flavor in the beef. It no longer just just tastes like tomato sauce drenched in flavorless meat. Also add salt and pepper to the meat (to taste) while sauteing with the onions and garlic and peppers before adding to the sauce.  -  15 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
