"The delightful surprise ingredient in this sauce is cinnamon, and I guarantee that it's absolutely delicious! In the military, the term "field grade" is for Colonels and Generals, as in "He's a field grade officer." That's how this recipe got it's name...by being the cream of the crop! It's one of the many recipes I've accumulated as a military wife for almost 30 years. This sauce freezes well."

This is thick and very good. I like a stronger tomato flavor, so I added a can of tomato paste. Smells wonderful, too!

We loved this one! The allspice and cinnamon add that "something elusive" to the flavor. I used 1 lb. ground turkey and 1 lb. lean ground beef. I also used about 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms ra...

It was very good but be careful with the cinnamon. I did not have allspice so I upped the cinnamon a tad. Do not add extra cinnamon. If anything, use a little less than is recommended.

This is a wonderful recipe! If you like things with a unique flair, try this sauce. My husband loved it. I bet it would make a superb lasagna sauce as well. You can add extra seasonings to your ...
