No one will probably like this, but it was a staple recipe when I was growing up. My Mom used ground venison b/c we were poor and that's all we had. I still like to make it once in awhile, but I use ground beef. It's really easy and filling. My Mom only added the peas if she need to stretch it a little bit more. Time is a guess b/c I have never timed making it.

Very good! I made this for lunch for DH, his dad and I and it was a hit just like long ago. I did add some onions and garlic along with salt and pepper and served it over mashed potatoes. Along side was a nice green salad. Thank you for the memories and I definately will make again. Made for Zaar Alphabet Soup Tag game.

Yummy! My husband and I both loved this! I made it with corn instead of peas because I didn't have any.
