“This is probably the BEST Hot Beefs EVER!!! I got this recipe several years ago, from my wife's best friend, who has since passed away, due to breast cancer. She was an EXCELLANT cook & this recipe is named in her honor. I usually start this the night before on a Friday or Saturday night & the house smells SOOOOOOOOOOOO good in the morning!!!”
