What you need:

3- 28 ounces cans of plum tomatoes, San Marzano is best.

1 cup of chopped onion

4 cloves of garlic chopped or more

A large handful of fresh basil

2 lbs of veal, cubed

1 tsp of red pepper flake (or more later)

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 oz EVOO

Dice, slice and cube everything to start, drain as much moisture from meat and tomatoes as possible, this aids in browning.

Heat oil in large enough pot to fit all the tomatoes with plenty of room left over.

Man that looks good. Costco has 5 lb cans of San Marzano tomatoes in my area, and I always stock up. Your sauce is very similar to my base tomato sauce, but I've never tried it with veal. That looks wonderful!

Nothing wrong with that !!!...

Don't you just love how the sauce changes color and consistency when it simmers so long with the meat ?
