"This is a really old recipe and I don't know how old it is. I changed a couple things to modernize it so it would pass muster to be accepted for this site. It's just a basic recipe that's nice to have for when you need a meal and don't have money or gas to go get a bunch of stuff, which happens a lot out here in South Dakota. Serve it with some fruit and frozen vegetables and it will stretch."

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Old fashioned comfort food. I added some garlic because I tend to add garlic to everything. My son thought the celery seeds were too strong, but he was the first one up packing this up for leftovers the next morning. So I'd say he gives it a 5 star review too. Thanks for sharing!

This is really good -- and easy too. Instead of steak sauce I used catsup but otherwise made as directed. Served with tossed salad, bread and fruit. Simple but good! Thanks for sharing!
