Getting Sauced
« on: September 13, 2014, 09:46:43 am »
Ran out of pasta sauce so I thought I would make some marinara (or at least my version of marinara.)

First, the players


Put the tomatoes, onions, garlic, roasted peppers in a pan, added salt and pepper, sprinkled with olive oil and in the oven to roast for about 35 mins. (makes the house smell good)
Before roasting


After roasting


Browning the pork steak


All the players in the pool. You can see the pepperoni floating in the sauce.


Now to simmer for about 5 hours, watch football and stirring occasionally. I set the "timer" so I don't forget to stir.
The timer


How it works: You put some sippin' whiskey in the glass. Place the glass near the stove. Go watch football. As you get thirsty, you get up take a sip, stir the sauce, go back to watch football. Repeat for the next 5 hours. When sauce is done, put in canning jars and can.

Last night I figured I would need something to go with the sauce, (besides Gentleman Jack) so I made up about 5 lbs of Italian sausage.



Now back to football and sippin' stirring.

I love making my own sauce.  Nice job!
Is it bad if my wife refers to the smoker as "The Mistress"?
