My Grandma Hanks taught my Dad how to make this when he was six years old, and he taught me when i was that age, I am the third generation making this recipe. And I'll be teaching my son how to make it too.
Layer about an inch of hamburger at the bottom of the pot
Then a thick layer of potatoes,add salt and pepper
then layer your onions and peas nice even layers,
repeat steps 1-3 until you get about an inch or two from the top of the pot, then pour your V8 over the top of your layers bring to low boil do not scorch and then cover & turn down to low for 3-4 hours DO NOT STIR, when finished cooking then you can mix it up and serve with french or italian bread. Enjoy!!!!
