When we were kids growing up, my grandmother used to make this for us when we came to visit and mother wanted quick and simple since she worked 2 jobs. It was so easy to make, but the left overs were even better the following day!
This will get gobbled up quick!

Note: This is always way better the 2nd day around. In that 24 hour time span the juices have soaked into everything and mixed so nicely, giving this dish a wonderful flavor.
In later years I also found that it is also wonderful on rice as well.
