Monday’s Bread Bowl: Japanese-Style Spaghetti

Sweet –n- Sassy

The Mixed Stew likes Japanese spaghetti and enjoyed several versions of it while growing up.  Here’s the recipe:

What you will need:

1 stock pot w/ lid
1 long wooden spoon
3 tbspns butter
1 small yellow onion, chopped small
2 garlic cloves, sliced
2 large carrots, diced small
2 lbs pork sausage or Italian sausage, loose
1 lb ground beef
3 bacon strips, sliced into bite-sized pieces
1 (24 oz.) jar spaghetti sauce
1 lb spaghetti noodles, cooked al dente
Pinch of salt and pepper

Cooking and Directions:

Heat stock pot on medium-high heat.  Melt butter in pot then add onion, bacon, garlic, and carrots.  Allow ingredients to sauté until onion turns translucent.  Next, gradually add pork sausage and ground beef.  Return lid.  Let meat brown (10- 12 minutes) then crumble with wooden spoon.  Add spaghetti sauce.  Mix well.  Return pot lid.  Lower heat to medium and let pot’s ingredients simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.  Remove pot from stove top once cooking time is done and serve over spaghetti noodles.  Serve with sour cream and Japanese Furikake.
