READY IN: 3hrs 15mins
Recipe by Doglover61aka Earnh

This is a recipe I had written down in an old cookbook and decided to try it one afternoon. It was a hit!! I fixed it with hashbrown casserole and a salad and it disappeared in a flash!

Delicious, but needs more liquid to start -- at least half the soup can of water. Probably also cover with foil for part of cooking time. I used 5-lb meat and after 2hrs, there was no way to "drain off fat" and barely enough sauce even to spread over all the meat. BTW: I used cream of celery because that's what I had!
