  1. The most important part of this recipe is to NOT brown your meat. It will cook as it simmers and it gives this an incredible texture.
  2. Brown onion in butter, add remaining ingredients. Mix thoroughly. Simmer for at least 30 minutes preferably without a lid to allow it to thicken up.
My mother in law was a great cook, this is one of the recipes of hers that we all enjoyed. She had 6 children so she learned to cook some inexpensive meals.
