Ingredients

Instructions

  • Chop the onion into about ¼" dice. Measure out the spices.
  • Heat the skillet on medium high heat and add the ground beef. Sauté until it is about 25% cooked and then add in the seasonings and the onions. Sauté for about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add in the Worcheshire sauce, diced tomatoes, and the sugar. Add in the pasta and 3 cups of beef stock. Stir well and try to get the pasta submerged in the broth. Keep the heat on medium high and the mixture should be boiling or a rapid simmer. Cover and let cook for about 5 minutes. Uncover.
  • Cook until the noodles are done to your liking. This will take about 8-10 minutes. Most of the liquid should be absorbed now.
  • Reduce the heat to medium low. Add in the vinegars and the tomato paste. Stir to incorporate. Add in the shredded cheese and stir. Turn the heat off.
  • Serve & Enjoy!

Notes

Instructions for Pressure Cooking:
These are ONLY my suggestions, I have not tested the recipe in the pressure cooker yet. 
Chop the onion into about ¼" dice. Measure out the spices.
Turn the pressure cooker on sear/sauté (medium high heat) and add the ground beef. Sauté until it is about 25% cooked and then add in the seasonings and the onions. Sauté for about 2-3 minutes.
Add in the Worcheshire sauce, diced tomatoes, and the sugar. Add in the pasta and 2 cups of beef stock. Stir well and try to get the pasta submerged in the broth. Add the vinegars and the tomato paste on top. DO NOT STIR.
Put the PC lid on and turn the valve to seal. PC for 3 minutes with a 2 minute NR. Turn the sear/sauté on medium and reduce the liquid if needed. 
Add in the cheese and stir to combine.
