This is my Mother’s recipe
1 lb. ground beef
2 large white potatoes, sliced thin
2 carrots, sliced
1 lg. onion, sliced
¾ cup diced celery if desired
1 stick of real butter (use thin slices as needed – not the whole stick)
Salt, pepper and garlic powder
Season beef with salt, pepper and garlic seasonings
(use your own judgment).
Line high above side an oven casserole dish with
aluminum foil so that the foil can be folded and closed tightly. Using the
wide, heavy duty, type foil works best.
Butter bottom of aluminum foil or use cooking spray
to keep ingredients from sticking to foil. Spread the layer of meat first
on the bottom. Next, put 4 or 5 thin slices of butter on it equally
placed. Next layer the
carrots and lightly sprinkle with seasoning and that same amount of
butter. Continue with the onion, celery and potato using the same
seasoning/butter method. Bake at 350 F degrees for one hour.
Season to taste.
