When I grew up my father was the one who cooked dinner on weeknights. He enjoyed "inventing" dishes from what was on hand. This is my tweaked version of his creation. Delicious, quick to make and easy on the budget. My kids always used to fight over the leftovers, if there *were* any. Wonderful served with a fresh salad, apple sauce and bread & butter. Servings is a guess-timate, but it makes enough for a hungry family of six! Can be simmered in a crockput on low for 4 hours if desired. Throw in 1-2 teaspoons of Bone Dust BBQ Rub if you want a more complex flavor - yum!
