Once the carrot and celery has slightly softened add the onion and garlic; lower the heat to avoid burning. Sprinkle in the beef bouillon cube and sauté for another 2-4 minutes over low heat.
Next, stir in the crushed tomato and water. Season with the sugar, salt, peppers, and dried herbs. Stir well and simmer over low heat for 25 minutes. Be sure to stir the sauce about half way through and check the temperature to avoid scorching. The sauce will be slightly thicker and glossy when it’s done.
