Recipe by litldarlin

This recipe is from my Uncle's mother in law who handed down this recipe to his wife before she died. I have this recipe now and have added it to my grandmother's recipe book, the one I updated last year. Every year we plan on adding more recipes to our "Family's Favorite Recipes" book. You can cut the recipe in half and still have enough left over meat to freeze for future meals.
