“Savory sauce with coffee. He would often smoke Italian sausage, and put it in in the last hour. Make plenty ahead of time, gets richer after a day or two.” - by Busitj
Original recipe yields 10 cups
- Place 3 tablespoons of olive oil into a saucepan over medium heat, and cook the garlic in the oil for 1 minute. Stir in the onions, and cook until translucent, about 5 more minutes. Stir in the green bell pepper, and cook until the pepper begins to become tender, about 5 more minutes. Set the vegetables aside.
- Place 2 tablespoons of olive oil into a large saucepan over medium heat, and cook and stir the ground beef until the meat is no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Break the meat up into crumbles as it cooks. Mix in the mushrooms, spaghetti sauce, tomato sauce, tomato paste (if you prefer a thicker sauce), and vegetables. Bring the sauce to a boil, and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the flavors have blended, about 30 minutes.
- Mix the coffee granules into the hot water, and pour into the sauce; simmer for 30 more minutes.

"Not a bad recipe but what's the point of adding an expensive jar of sauce when you are going to all this trouble and making a homemade sauce? The coffee added a bitter burnt taste to what was a too-g..." See morereasy meat sauce. All the oil just adds more grease to the fat from the ground beef that isn't drained out. It was a high school cafeteria meat sauce. It has OK flavor but the pool of red grease on top made it something I wouldn't make again exactly as the recipe directs. The almost 1/3 cup of added oil is way over the top and you should definitely drain out the fat from the ground beef. The secret ingredient coffee flavor could be done a little better by sautéing the tomato paste in ONE Tablespoon of the olive oil at the beginning of the recipe and then adding the cooked and DRAINED beef and omitting the coffee and the additional 1/4 cup (4 TBS) of olive oil called for in the original version."
