I have friends that live or lived in the NE. US. and they call it gravy. My friend just called it gravy the other day.
Seems gravy does have its place, as Sunday gravy usually was cooked with meat. Slowly cooked meat in the sauce for several hours. My kids always likes it and i did too growing up.
It could be meatballs, sausage or pieces of pork.
The trick is to brown the meat very good before you add to the sauce. I brown the meat in the pot first, remove, make the sauce and put the meat back in. Long cook, make some pasta and fresh crusty bread and its all good.
Hey Duff, I grew up watching the frugal gourmet. But first it was Julia and even the Galloping Gourmet.
I learned many technique from each of them.
A relative was married to an Italian girl who one time told us either her grandmother or mother used to put crabs in the spaghetti sauce. We did it (as we had a home on the Bay and crabs and eels were plentiful) and it tasted, believe it or not, very good.
Yep, Its called "enchilado". A red sauce with seafood. It was a special meal for us.
My mother was raised in Tampa "Ybor City".
They used lots of seafood and blue crabs were the specialty. All my family made this. Cleaned up blue crabs (shoulders and claw's) dropped into sauce.
You got to have plenty beer and plenty time to enjoy this dish as it takes forever to eat blue crabs. But its fun and delicious as long as the company is good.
We had "Jersey Blue Crabs" and they were (still are I guess) delicious. We used to put beer in the boiling water, along with other things, and the beer gave the crabs a good taste.
Cleaned, no matter what way you ate them, they were delicious.
Nothing like East Coast seafood!
Best come here!!
The seafood out here doesn't taste the same. The lobster tastes different and so do the crabs. Aside from being outrageously expensive ($10 for one Dungenes Crab???).
