Though this recipe is not from my side of the family, it is undoubtedly one of our family’s favorites. It’s a dish that our girls always look forward to when I’m traveling. Fortunately, my wife, Lael, also makes it when I’m home. It has all the qualities of our favorite dishes: simplicity, ease of preparation, and genuine flavors. Usually, Lael uses a mixture of beef and pork, but sometimes she likes making it with equal parts of beef, pork, and veal. This is probably the first recipe I have ever written that calls for ketchup, but it just wouldn’t be the same without it.
