Forty years ago I made this casserole for a friend of mine and she decided it should be called Poor Man Stew.

My aunt is responsible for the original recipe and she always called this Five Layer Casserole because of the five layers.

Recipes get tweaked and changed so often that the original Five Layer Casserole name has become many other things... so from hence forth my version shall be known as Poor Man Stew
