  • In a small bowl combine the onion powder, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and salt. Pour over the ground beef and stir to combine.
  • Add the chicken broth to the ground beef and stir using a wooden spoon to scrape up any bits of food stuck to the bottom of the pan.
  • Pour the crushed tomatoes in, DO NOT STIR.
  • Pour the diced tomatoes on top, DO NOT STIR.
