As a child, this recipe was one of my favorite meals. My mother had gotten the recipe from her mother, my grandmother. It was a family favorite from their German heritage. My mother always cooked it for my great Uncle Hiram because he relished the memories of his mother making if for him as a boy. I alway serve it over mashed potatoes. There is something about okra and tomatoes, and okra is a perfect compliment to this dish!
