This recipe has been passed down on my dad's side and is our family favorite. As far as we all know his great-aunt created this recipe. This is absolutely delicious and is great for those cold months. Serve hot. You can also slow cook this. We prefer to serve this with cornbread, but rolls are fine too. This can be kept in an air-tight container in the fridge for about a week.
