Directions

MAKING
1) Place a large skillet over moderate-high heat and add the oil.
2) Once the oil is hot enough, saute the onion and garlic till the onions are well browned, but not burned.
3) Use a slotted spoon to remove the contents to a slow cooker.
4) Into the skillet, turn the meat and break it up. Saute on high heat, stirring often, till it is in little lumps and thoroughly browned.
5) Add the tomato paste, tomatoes and water to the still hot skillet. Scrape up the pan juices.
6) Turn the heat off and then add the sugar as well as all the other ingredients to the sauce.
7) Combine the ingredients together well and then add to the contents of the slow cooker. Stir well.
8) Cover the cooker and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours. While the sauce is well cooked after about 4 hours, it tastes better when cooked for long.
9) In case the sauce seems to thin, gently simmer it in a skillet for 4 o 5 minutes prior to serving.

SERVING
10) Transfer the meat to a serving plate, top with the hot sauce and serve while still piping hot.
