Prepare the following sauce to cover:
Braise two chopped onions and add half-pound of finely-ground round steak with a little chunk of suet. Season with salt and pepper to taste, a half bead of garlic, and a small can of mushrooms. Add two fresh tomatoes and a small tin of tomatoes. Braise this mixture two hours. Drain spaghetti, place on platter or in bowl. Cover with the sauce, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
