This was tasty and easy. Tasted like it had cooked all day! I added 2 tbls. of dried onion flakes. Canned tomatoes or grean beans would be a good addition, also. Hit the spot on this dreary day (in summer, no less :( )

This recipe was good, and will probably become a recipe for weeknights. I did add an undrained can of diced tomatoes though, for my family's personal preference.
