Originally this recipe was from a small restaurant in an industrical area of KC, MO. My aunt worked in the area and went there to eat often. One day a week they made this stew and always sold out. Just before they retired they told my aunt how it was made. We came up with this in the 60s and still make it often. It was made in the oven but now I made it in the slow cooker.
