Slow Cooker “Chunky Tomato Sauce” from a Billet Mom

Posted on 0 0

I have several recipes for Tomato Sauce but I make this one in my Slow Cooker.  It is a little time consuming by time you chop up all the vegetables but the flavour is wonderful.  With carrots, celery, onions and garlic it is delicious.  When I am in a hurry I have made this sauce on top of the stove.  

Not all my Billet Sons liked the vegetables left chunky so I usually put it through the blender for them.  I cannot begin to count the amount of this sauce I have made over the years of Billeting.


A Billet Mom’s “Chunky Tomato Sauce” Ingredients

2 cans (28 oz) diced tomatoes, no salt or 1 (4 qt) basket tomatoes, peeled and chopped

1 can (28 oz) crushed tomatoes

1 or 2 large onions, chopped

3 medium carrots, chopped

4 stalks celery, chopped

3-4 cloves garlic, chopped fine

2 Tablespoons granulated white sugar

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon salt

2 Tablespoons Italian seasoning


A Billet Mom’s “Chunky Tomato Sauce” Directions

  2. Add pepper, salt, sugar, and italian seasoning, stir.

A Billet Mom’s Notes and Tips

  • If you like peppers add a cup of red, green or yellow peppers, chopped.
  • Jalapeno or chipotle peppers will spice this sauce up but be careful too many will make it too spicy!
  • Put through blender if you prefer a smooth sauce.
  • Freeze to use later.
  • Season to your taste.  If you like it a little spicy add some chili powder, chili peppers or cayenne pepper spice.
  • If you like garlic increase the amount.  I usually use a whole bulb of garlic.  Roast a garlic bulb and add it to your sauce for a unique garlic flavour.  If you decide to roast your garlic use the whole bulb in this recipe.
