This recipe is such a hit it's "traveled" all over the country! My mother originated the recipe in Pennsylvania...I brought it to Texas when I married...I'm still making it in California...and my daughter treats her friends to this "oldie" in Colorado.

"The dutch oven is somewhere in the shed, so I used a casserole dish and baked this recipe at 350 for an hour. i sprinkled cheese on top and returned the dish to the oven for ten more minutes. My husband really enjoyed it, he said it was just like Hobo stew that his family makes while campling."
