  1. Interesting the OSF menu states their meat sauce is made with "ground beef sautéed with onions and celery"...yet yours has no celery...perhaps your is not the actual recipe and simply some typical made up version.

    1. Uh, stewed tomatoes have celery in them already.

  2. Stewed Tomatoes have celery in them? Are you sure about this

  3. Drain grease after browning beef or not?
