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

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

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.

Looks fantastic! I suspect it would be quite good with cubed beef, ground beef, ground turkey, chicken thighs, pork, or ground pork.

Of course- this can be used as a base for any meat.
