This delicious recipe sticks to the ribs and will please the whole family. My own personal version of the traditional English classic. High altitude tested.

This was good, but a little salty. I would suggest using low sodium canned soups. I also added a can of corn for some color.

This was really good. It went over well with my family! I didn't find it too salty at all. I used frozen peas instead of canned ones (I didn't thaw them, mixed them in frozen) and 45min was perfect. I would like to use real potatoes next time (I used instant) but it was still really good. I added canned corn to my own portion and next time I will add it to the whole thing, it added the sweetness it was missing. This was a great meal with ingredients I had around the house! :)

I thought this was very good!! Next time I make it I will cook the celery until it is tender. I served it with a salad and dinner rolls. I will be making this again.
