I cooked this today and think it is a pretty good replication of a dish I made in the 60's that was quick and tasty.

It can be served on buns as sandwiches or over rice or mashed potatoes for a main meat entree.

Either way, I think you'll like it. Sorry I forgot to take pix until the sandwiches were all devoured.
