As a child my mother used to make this dish. She would serve it with biscuits and with it being a filling as it is, we wouldn't be hungry again for hours! My father retired from the army and he was the one who showed my mother how to cook. I'm not sure if the army is where he learned this one, but it is a favorite around my home.
