How to make a da gravy
How to make meat sauce or "gravy."

Fry up two big onions in olive oil. I like the white ones. They're a little more expensive though. Don't fry em long though. Just brown them but keep em firm.

Fry up a few pounds of 80% ground beef. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, crushed hot red pepper. Throw the onions back in after it is about half browned, along with a package of sliced baby bella mushrooms. Do not drain the fat.

Tomatos. Only use whole canned tomats, hand crushed. Never use paste, puree, crushed, diced. They use the shittier tomats from the crop for the processed stuff. I use Tuttorosso brand usually. Not much more than store brand and they're on sale a lot. Use three or four cans, like I said, hand crushed. I use a few cans of the "with basil" too. Bring to a boil than shovel in your meat, onions, shrooms and a few cloves of fresh garlic. I use a few big hunks of elephant garlic. I also put in a great big swirl of red wine. Carlo Rossi "Paisano."

Now keep in mind you can add other stuff too if you like. I don't ususally add sweet peppers because of the skin, some like peppers, so maybe skin em or deal with skins in there. You can fry up some sausages to throw in there. Veal is really good and not too expensive these days for a bone-in veal chop. Pan fry that in some olive oil and throw the whole thing right in. Some chunks of pork. Pork is big with Italians. They've got great pigs in Italy. But here in America, I say beef is where it's at.

Now you're gonna have to let all that simmer away for 4-6 hours, stirring frequently. I always hear Ray Liotta playing Henry Hill in Goodfellas, "Don't let the sauce stick." I've got a great big flat bottomed non-stick wok that I use (bought it at Kmart), but you still gotta keep stirring it. Toward the end add some sugar and maybe another splash of wine. Then once it is really thickened up and just about done, add some oregano, maybe a little more black pepper, and some other seasonings if you like. When it's ready, it should be really thick and it will have darkened quite a bit. I dunno, it just hits a sort of "popping point" when I know it's ready.

Now spoon that over a big mound of pasta. Serve with salad and some garlic bread. Or you could really go all out and spoon it over a big tray of ziti to bake with ricotta, mozzerella, provolone and parmesan. I ususally try to layer it. Pasta sauce cheese, more pasta sauce cheese, alternating the cheeses.

I think meat sauce is probably may favorite food. If I forgot any steps here I'll stop back and revise.

I'm not much into cooking these days. I have to cook dinner tonight, using pre-cooked ground beef that's been sitting in the fridge. I threw two cans of Hunt's Sauce in with it on the stove, and added some oregano, but still needing something. Any suggestions? hf

Garlic. Garlic powder. Onion. Onion powder. Black pepper. Dash of hot red pepper.

EDIT to add: Basil too if you got some.

Re: How to make a da gravy
Oh, and one more thing. Better to not add your oregano or basil til near the end. It can scorch, or the flavor will just get lost at the very least.

Powder is okay. I use both usually. Well, espcially with the garlic. I ususally use a lot of fresh white onion so don't really need the onion powder too.

And garlic bread? I always use the powder, even though everyone else has gone all trendy using fresh crushed. Powder is so much better for the garlic bread.

Re: How to make a da gravy
Oh, one other thing, don't be shy with the cheeses. Even if you're not baking ziti, I still like to sprinkle with parmersan, romano, some shaved provolone, maybe a thick slice of FRESH mozzerella on the side, even a dollup of ricotta right in the middle. Any combination there.

Re: How to make a da gravy
It's rare that I can find a place to cook these days, but here are some pics of the last time I made a batch. No stove, so I used my plug-in electric burner.

This first pic you can see that it's filled right to the edge. This is right after it got started. You can see the big hunks of elephant garlic floating in there.


:saucetwo:


In this pic you can see the two veal chops that I have pan fried and have waiting on the side. I had to wait for the sauce to boil down some to make room to insert the extra meat.

:sauceone:


In these two pics you can see the finished product after about six hours. I wish the colors were a bit better, but you can still get some sense of the change. The finished stuff has a nice rich redness and "shine" to it. The meat on the plate is the veal I pulled out after it simmered in the sauce to the point of literally just falling apart.

Re: How to make a da gravy
Just while I'm thinking of it, here's another trick with the onion. Fry up one with olive oil and sugar before tossing it in. Nicely browned and carmelized. Dont bother to throw it in until toward the end though.

For the "main" onions you want them to be in bigger pieces and only fry them a little so they can simmer longer in the tomat. You'll want those in there right from the start as you get it all boiling.

Gives you a whole nice gradual slide of onion goodness in the flavor.


Also, I put a lid on at first to get it boiling, but then I take the lid off or at least let it vent the steam after a while so it boils down a little faster.

Also, a dash of salt over the ground beef might help it tenderize a little better.

Re: How to make a da gravy
Gotta disagree with you on the Tuttorosso. I think they are horrible. For cheaper tomatoes, i like Sclafani brand. If you are going to splurge, which i know you currently can't really do jack, I like LaValle San Marzano tomatoes, or most brands that are from San Marzano. Hope you enjoyed the sauce.

What the fuck do you think gravy is moron?

Now in the first shots there is no grease at all. That's just all the different juices swirling around. But in the end, that nice sheen slick sheen across the surface is indeed some nice tasty FAT from the beef.

Please, give us your fatless recipe for gravy. I'll bet it's real tasty with the tofu turkey.

The Sclafani are like twice as much around here! Dang. The Tuttorosso aren't the greatest, but I have found that the store brands have really fallen off in their quality, where I used to actually prefer them over some of the name brands.

Thanks for sharing your input anyhow. San Marzano is certainly of good reputation.

(And I ALWAYS enjoy the gravy!)

Re: How to make a da gravy
I make a very similar meat sauce. I sautee a bell pepper with the onion. I use whole tomatoes but add one can of Rotel. I also add chili powder and worchestershire sauce. I blend the ground meat with ground pork. I can eat on it for days. Makes me hungry thinking about it.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 532897


Your making chili, not gravy. Lol. Bet it tastes good nonetheless.

I don't mix meats of the same cut. So if I go with ground pork, I'll shift the beef into stew chunks. Usually though, If I use pork I just get a pack of nice fatty trimmings for 99-cents a pound. Could always go with more expensive cuts of course. But even there, the only pork I usually wind up adding is sausage. Stop & Shop has a good store brand sausige.

One time I tried the meatlof/meatball mix of ground pork, beef, and veal. Some people swear by it. I wasn't impressed though of how it came out in a gravy.

A good batch of sauce is indeed soemthing it's hard to get tired of, and can eat on for days. Back when I still had a place, I kept it right on the stove top. Didn't even bother to refrigerate until the next night, unless it was summertime. Wake up in the middle of the night with the smell of it still heavy in the air and go fix a little midnight scooby snack.

At one point I kept a pot of it going for almost two weeks. Just added the old stuff to a newer batch every other night or so. Now THAT was some good gravy by the end of the week. It doesn't get more authentic than that.
