This was my beloved Grandmother's (who owned her own catering business) recipes and one of my favorite meals for her to cook while I visited with her as a kid.

Her personal notes on the recipe were: "Freezes beautifully. I freeze portions separately and freeze them for a quick on the go meal!"

Rated  by LindaL2005 on 8/22/2008 This recipe was easy to make. I added one bay leaf and instead of beef soup base I used one beef bouillon cube and two cups of water. I also used a pot on top of the stove,which mami44 did and it did work just as well. Excellent!! My family loved it!!
