I don't know the origin of this recipe or the original name but friends of ours (Mike & Bev) served it to us one night for dinner with a tossed salad and a crusty loaf of bread!! It was awesome and I have been making it ever since. A great "friend get together meal" as we serve it straight from the cook pot in the middle of the table and soak up all the great juices with the crusty bread.. Yummy!!!
