Maw’s Spaghetti

Cook time: 45 Min Prep time: 45 Min Serves: 4
1/4-1/2 c salt pork, I do the 1/2 c
1 1/2 lb meat; ground beef, turkey mix w/ Italian sausage, etc; your choice
1/2-1 medium onion chopped
2 clove fresh garlic
12 oz can(s) tomato paste
2 can(s) water
1 Tbsp Itallian seasoning
1 Tbsp basil, dried
1 Tbsp oregano, dried
1-2 Tbsp white Karo syrup to taste
1 pkg sliced mushrooms, fresh are better
1/2 medium eggplant, sliced and quartered. you can leave this out.
1 Tbsp parsley
1. Render out salt pork until well done. Remove from pan and set aside. Don’t eat them all cause you will be tempted. (Render= to try out oil from fat, blubber, etc., by melting.)
2. Add to hot skillet – 1/2 to 1 large chopped onion and 2 cloves of minced garlic until just translucent.
3. Add ground beef and cook just until the pink is gone. Strain grease. Return meat to pan and add the Karo Syrup, In the meantime…..
4. Add the large can of tomato paste and fill can 2x with water. Heat until well dissolved. Add the oregano, basil, parsley, and Italian seasoning. I like a lot of flavor so I add a large heaping TBSP of each.
5. Simmer 30-40 minutes.
6. 10-15 minutes before done, add the eggplant and fresh mushrooms. Stir in and do not overcook. Right before turning off, add the salt pork. Serve immediately. Yum.
