This is another one I make for the workmen and the family during seeding and harvest. I usually double it for the men They like it. I serve it with mashed potatoes or thin spaghetti or rice. Always with crusty bread.
I have frozen it in meal size portions for my husband to take when he is working away on our other properties.
