  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted grass-fed butter
  • 1 cup chopped sweet or yellow onion
  • 3-4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon Greek oregano
  • 1 28oz can crushed tomatoes


  • Heat oil and butter in a pot over medium-high heat (I used a 5qt).
  • Once it's nice and hot, add in the chopped onions and cook for five minutes; stirring occasionally.
  • Add in the garlic and let cook for one minute.
  • Throw in the ground beef and cook until completely browned. Use a wooden spoon to chop up the meat finely.
  • Add in the salt, a few cranks of black pepper, basil, and oregano and stir until combined.
  • Add in crushed tomatoes, stir until well combined and let come to a boil.
  • Once the sauce reaches its boiling point, cover with a lid and lower the heat to a simmer.
  • Simmer for 30 minutes.
