“I picked this recipe up in a family circle booklet. The best thing I like about this recipe is that it is all cooked in one pot. I often throw in peas or beans towards the end of cooking so it is a complete meal. I have also cooked this one is a crockpot by just cutting down of the amount of liquid.”
