Personal Notes:
This started as my mothers recipe but she used garlic and onion powders and also added water to the sauce and probably only a half pound of hamburger as she was trying to stretch her dollars. She also didn't use tomato paste resulting in a thinner sauce. I loved my mother's sauce so I think the magic ingredient is the Crystal sauce.
