Try this one. Maybe it's not the one you're looking for, but it's delicious! Very tasty and easy to prepare.

Greek Steak Tomato Sauce

2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2/3 cup tomato sauce
1/4 cup dry red wine
honey (optional)
1 ounce crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup flat leaf parsley, chopped

1. Heat the olive oil over medium heat.
2. Sauté the onion with a pinch of salt until soft, about 8 minutes.
3. Add the garlic, cinnamon, and oregano, and cook for 5 minutes.
4. Add the wine, swirl it around the pan, and then add the tomato sauce. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 8 minutes.
5. Check the seasoning, and add honey if the sauce tastes acidic.
6. You can top it with feta cheese and parsley before serving. The feta on top melts wonderfully and adds a sharp zing at the end.

Hope you'll enjoy it!

P.S. of course you can put ketchup instead of tomato sauce. But than be careful with the rest of ingridients because ketchup already has spices in it. It's better to go with tomato sauce so you can modify ingridients to your taste if needed!

I'm sure Greeks have more class than to put ketchup in any of their sauces.
