1medium yellow onion
2plum tomatoesuse a food processor to crush
1can (14 ozs) diced tomatoesif you can dice fresh tomatoes, even better
1cup fresh chopped parsley
salt/pepper to taste
4tbsps olive oilif ground beef has a higher % of fat, I usually do 3 tbsps of olive oil, or if the ground beef is very lean than i can add a bit more.
Saute minced garlic and finely chopped onion with olive oil over medium heat.
When onion becomes translucent, add ground beef and stir often so onion doesn't get burnt.
Once meat is browned well, then add the crushed plum tomatoes and the can of diced tomatoes. Mix well and stir slowly until sauce starts to boil. Lower heat to low. Make sure the plum tomatoes are soft so they can provide enough juice for cooking the sauce.
Add bay leaves, parsley and oregano. Stir occasionally and let it simmer on low temperature. If you cook it on higher temps, sauce will dry up and burn. You want to keep the temperature low. Keep the pan covered when you're not stirring.
Add salt/pepper and mushrooms around 40 minutes. Mix well, let it simmer again for another 20 minutes. Let it cool down, serve over favorite pasta, rice or with a side of salad.
