Meat Sauce


  • 1 pound of beef
  • 1/2 an onion
  • 3 ounces of lard
  • parsley
  • salt, pepper
  • 1 clove
  • 1 very small slice of ham
  • 4 tablespoons of red wine
  • 4 tablespoons of tomato sauce (or tomato paste)


Put into a saucepan beef and onion chopped up with lard, some parsley, salt, pepper, one clove, and ham.

Fry these over a hot fire for a few moments, moving them continually, and when the onion is browned add red wine, and tomato sauce (or tomato paste).

When this sauce begins to sputter, add, little by little, some boiling water. Stick a fork into the meat from time to time to allow the juices to escape. Take a little of the sauce in a spoon, and when it looks a good golden color, and there is a sufficient quantity to cover the meat, put the covered saucepan at the back of the stove and allow it to simmer until the meat is thoroughly cooked.

Then take out the meat, slice it, prepare macaroni, or any paste you desire, and serve it with the meat, and the sauce poured over all, and the addition of butter and grated cheese.
