  1. In a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, brown the meat, onion and garlic in the oil, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon. Season with salt. Add the spices and cook for 3 minutes more.
  2. Deglaze with the vinegar and Worcestershire sauce. Add the water, tomato sauce, tomato paste, bay leaves and cloves. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer gently for about 2 hours, stirring frequently. Remove the bay leaves. Adjust the seasoning.
  3. For an authentic presentation, serve on al dente spaghetti. Garnish with kidney beans, green onions and cheddar.
