Homemade Spaghetti Sauce is so easy to make!
I have been making my own spaghetti sauce for years! It’s so easy and I think it tastes great. To make life even easier I used my slow cooker and just had to boil my spaghetti 10 minutes before dinner time. Cooking it low and slow all day is the best way to do it.
Do I have to brown ground beef first?
For this recipe, you will need to start your meal on the stovetop. Also, the onions, peppers, and garlic will cook with the beef and it should take no longer than 10 minutes. If you are choosing to skip the beef and make a tomato sauce you can add everything right to the slow cooker including the veggies.
Can I ground beef in my slow cooker?
Some slow cookers are stovetop safe but a lot of them are not. Before using your insert on the stovetop make sure to find out if your model made to do that. If your slow cooker allows it then you can easily cook the ground beef and veggies in the insert then move to your slow cooker. Here is an example of a slow cooker that can be used on the stovetop, Crock-Pot with stovetop browning.
How to make Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce:
Start by heating your olive oil in a skillet and cooking your beef. Cook on medium heat and add minced onions, green peppers, and garlic. Cook until brown. Drain the beef’s excess fat and place it in the slow cooker. Add crushed tomato, diced tomato, and all seasonings Allow to cook on low for up to 7-8 hours. Stir and then serve on warm noodles!
