This is my mother's recipe from the 1960's. This was her winter go-to company recipe. She served it over rice, noodles or mashed potatoes with a green salad and crescent rolls.

You can leave it in the oven for up to 8 hours if you like, but not less than 4 hours. It can also be cooked in a crock pot. Cook on low for 8 hours or 4 hours on high. Just DON'T PEEK! It is necessary to retain the moisture in the dish for a melt-in-your-mouth tender meal.

It freezes well, but freeze in the pan to avoid liquid leakage.
