MY INDIANA FARM STYLE GOULASH - from the 50's

This is my old family farm recipe.
I put together in the 50's !
YEP! Row crops,soy beans and corn.
All the ingredients are cooked then put together, during the day.
Put in the oven (covered) on low till dinner time. Served with a salad and Italian bread....you have a wonderful, and satisfying meal.
On the farm this saved a lot of time..to have dinner prepared and ready to eat...after chores were done. Never had any leftovers!!
But would freeze very well.
I made this this week and shared with my neighbors. They asked me to make it again...SOON!!
