I got this recipe from the Ocala Star Banner recipe data base. It was submitted by a lady from South Carolina. It is a recipe with foods that people from Pittsburgh enjoy. You can substitute 2 cups of chicken broth for the 2 cups beer. You can use mashed potatoes instead of the cooked cubed potatoes.
