I originally came across a five-layer version of this dish at a Home Extension program. I increased the ground beef and added the celery myself, and my family prefers this version.—Charlotte McDaniel, Williamsville, Illinois


  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 medium onions, thinly sliced
  • 3 medium potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 large green pepper, chopped
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 celery ribs, chopped
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) stewed tomatoes
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil


  1. In a Dutch oven, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Layer beef with onions, potatoes and green pepper, seasoning each layer lightly with salt and pepper. Top with celery, tomatoes and basil.
  2. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 1 hour or until vegetables are tender.
