Grandma Flo's Shipwreck


This shipwreck recipe was given to my husband by a friend at work who brought it for lunch often. You can't go wrong with meat and potatoes, and this recipe combines them in one dish. I usually double it for my family; my husband works in a giant tire factory and has an appetite to match. The smell of the delicious potatoes makes it hard to wait for the meal to finish baking.
