This was a real time saver years ago.When I came home from work, and dinner was hot and ready, in the oven. Original recipe from an A-1 advertisement,1950. My boys called it "GOUBASH" like a garbage dish! They loved it. Dad called it "GOULASHIE" like the goulashes you wore back then. Remember ???....LOL! This is a lot like the Hungarian GOULASH SOUP,recipe. My recipe is not a soup, and the only vegetable is tomatoes. It is known as "AMERICAN CHOP SUEY" since the 50's! I have even heard it called "SLUMGULLIAN".....LOL I now use the crockpot, not the oven. Nancy 6/14/13
