“This recipe has great flavor and is a meal all in itself, but to make it even more hearty, serve with biscuits on the side. I also like to substitute venison sausage for the beef...the stronger flavor of game meat goes well with these ingredients. I found this recipe online a while back, though I can't remember where, and it's been a regular dinner recipe ever since.”
