Recipe by jusme
This recipe originally came from the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook. My mom and grandma have been making it since I can remember. Don't skip the onion on top, even if you don't like onion; it's a subtle addition that makes the meat really yummy.

my mom also made this but it did not have chili powder- I still have the original cookbook and that was not in there- may have to try the chili powder. It is the best! Have tried it in the crock pot also but it is better in the oven.
