Nice to see this recipe. When I was married 44 yrs. ago, I made this same recipe and dh loved it. I lost it and never found it till you posted it. Now I can make it for him one day and surprise him. Substituting turkey for the beef and low sodium and low sugar ingredients. His diet has changed quite a bit recently in his old age. lol Thanks for posting it.
