My mother invented this recipe one evening when my father brought home unexpected guests. She grabbed some cans from the pantry in order to stretch a pound of hamburger into a meal for company. We enjoyed it often during my childhood, and my mother’s concoction is one of my favorite comfort foods.
Proportions of the ingredients are flexible.
Brown the ground meat in a large skillet. Add remaining ingredients and stir well to mix. Simmer at least thirty minutes. Serve over rice.
