2 pounds ground beef (80/20)
2 large sweet onions, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 red or green bell pepper
3 cups beef broth
2 15 oz cans tomato sauce
2 15 oz cans diced tomatoes
2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
1 12 oz can of black beans rinsed and drained
3 bay leaves (optional)
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon seasoned salt
2 cups pasta, uncooked (We prefer Penne)


In a Dutch oven, sauté the ground beef over medium-high heat until no pink remains. Break up the meat while sautéing. Spoon off any grease and add the onions and garlic to the pot and sauté until they are tender, about 5 minutes. Add 3 cups water, along with the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, Italian seasoning, bay leaves, soy sauce, salt, pepper and seasoned salt. Stir well. Place a lid on the pot and allow this to cook for 15 to 20 minutes. Add the pasta, stir well, return the lid to the pot, and simmer for about 30 minutes stirring occasionally. Turn off the heat, remove the bay leaves, and allow the mixture to sit about 30 minutes more before serving.

1/2 lb 80/20 hamburger divided

2 large sweet onions caramelized

1/4 pound grated Gruyere

3 heaping tbsp of flour

Red wine

1 crushed garlic clove

1/4 stick butter

1 sprig of Thyme

1 Bay leaf

Salt and pepper to taste


Melt the butter in a small pan over medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, bay leaves, thyme, and salt and pepper and cook until the onions are very soft and caramelized, about 25 minutes. Add the wine, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the wine has evaporated and the onions are dry, about 5 minutes. Discard the bay leaves and thyme sprigs. Dust the onions with the flour and give them a stir. Turn the heat down to medium low so the flour doesn’t burn, and cook for 10 minutes to cook out the raw flour taste. Grill your hamburger and toast buns. Pile onions and sauce on hamburger patty, top with cheese and season to taste with salt and pepper.
