Put the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the garlic and onion, and saute until onion becomes translucent. About 5 minutes. Add the ground beef and let it cook until fully browned, about 5 minutes. Make sure to break up the ground beef while browning so that it cooks evenly.

Cover the pot. Set the burner to low heat and let simmer for about 60 minutes. Sauce will turn a deep red color.
