This recipe got its name courtesy of my daughter when she was 7 years old. She is now 17 and still asks for "Worm Steak". Great for feeding a large group on a budget. Easily doubled or tripled. It's also great for smaller children that don't have the teeth to chew big pieces of steak. Serve with a salad and some rice. Left overs (if there are any) make fantastic sandwiches for lunch.
