SUNDAY SAUCE

Or IS IT GRAVY !!!!
I saw Steve Martorano on Jimmy Kimmel last night. Steve is great. He’s the King of Meatballs, and quite possibly GRAVY. Italian Sunday Gravy that is! Or is it Sunday Sauce … Steve empahtically says it’s GRAVY, “IT AIN’T SAUCE” !!! And Steve is adoment about this … Steve says, “If it has Meat it’s Gravy, and if it doesn’t as in the case with Tomato Sauce then it’s SAUCE … Basta!
Yes Steve is right about this, but that doesn’t mean others are wrong. And Steve has stated that without a doubt in Brookly, New York and South Philadelphia where Steve is from, they all call it Gravy … But there’s always a debate. Some simply call a Italian sauce made with Italian Pork Sausages, Meatballs, Braciole, Spare Ribs, and other meat items (even chicken), that if its tomatoes braised with meat, it’s GRAVY and not Sauce, aka Sunday Gravy .. But there are some who call this Sauce, or Sunday Sauce … Well, different people call it different things, and really there is no one right or wrong answer. I myself and all my family members in Jersey, we all called it Gravy, as do most in the New York, New Jersey, and Philadelphia areas do.
So why do I call my book Sunday Sauce you ask? Well because it can be. It can be called Sunday Sauce, and as a book title it just sounds better. And for those who don’t know, there is a whole science and method to naming, producing, selling, and marketing a book, thus for my book, the name Sunday Sauce … 
And hey, I’m not going to get into a beef with Steve, the guy is awesome and one of the greatest ambassadors of all to what I consider a trully Great and Ligitimate Cusisine of Italian America, that being Italian-American Food (Cusisine).
Anyway, back to the Jimmy Kimmel Show, Steve and the Sunday Gravy … Steve showed Jimmy how to make it, with a bit of fun and funny ribbing by Steve of Jimmy … The Gravy was made, and Steve sat down with Guillermo and Jimmy and ate it.
Well Gravy? We have al sorts of Pasta, Zuppa, Pizza, Meatball Parms, Veal & Chicken Parm, Sausage & Peppers and lots more, but there’s one Italian-American dish that rains Supreme above all other, and that’s our beloved Sunday Sauce on Sunday, or as Steve would say, 
“I Ain’t Sauce, It’s GRAVY” !!!!
BASTA la PASTA !!!!
Italian Gravy
“Yo CUZ” !!!!
