“My SIL made this & I loved it. Getting the recipe was a challenge since Lou is a "cook with what I have on hand" person. I've used my best guess for directions but am fairly confident of the ingredients. Cook time does NOT include boiling the potatoes but DOES include the standing time. Updated to reply to reviews: I always use the beer most commonly found in Texas coolers - Miller Lite. I suggest that you add additional mustard in you use a darker beer. Added salt & Tabasco additions to directions.”
