 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4      Pounds        Ground beef chuck
    2      Tablespoons   Olive oil
    4                    Onions; med -- finely chopped
    4      Cans          Tomato paste -- (6 oz ea)
    4                    Garlic cloves -- minced
    1      Teaspoon      Mixed pickling spice
    1      Cup           Dry white wine
    1      Tablespoon    Salt
                         Freshly ground pepper
 
   Using a large frying pan, brown meat in 1 tablespoon olive oil until it  
 loses its pink color.   Transfer to crockery pot.    Add remaining olive  
 oil to pan.  Saute onions until glazed. Transfer to crockery pot. Add  
 tomato paste, garlic, pickling spice, (put in a tea ball or tie in a  
 cheesecloth bag), wine, salt, and pepper. Cover. Cook on LOW 8 hours. Stir 
  once or twice.  Cool slightly.   Ladle into freezer containers, or serve  
 hot. Makes about 3 quarts. NOTE:  This meat sauce is great for various  
 dishes: spaghetti, moussaka, and the Greek mararoni dish, Pastitsio. It is 
 also good spooned over tacos  or ladled inside avocado half shells. This 
 recipe makes a large quantity  and freezes well. SOURCE: Extra Special
