Take a look at this amazing recipe that comes to us from an Amish woman in Wisconsin, a hearty, six-layer plate-piler. This type of meal is a staple in Amish kitchens because it is easy to throw together and it replenishes a lot of calories after a hard day in the fields or the workshop.
Reader Barbara tested it out for us and here is what she had to say:
Mr says this casserole was surprisingly tasty! He had 2 helpings. This was an easy recipe to put together and was done in the 2 hours. I did put a piece of foil over the dish during the 2nd hour of cooking because the tomatoes appeared to be drying out a bit and I did not want that to happen. Would be a good recipe to put together in the morning to have ready for baking later in the day.
And now here is the recipe for this winner of a meal!
- 2 cups raw ground beef
- 2 cups sliced raw potatoes
- 2 cups chopped celery
- ½ cup diced onions
- 2 teaspoons salt or less
- ¼ teaspoon pepper

- Grease a casserole dish. Sprinkle each layer with salt and pepper before adding the next layer. Place potatoes in the bottom of the casserole.
- Add the layer of celery.Add the layer of ground beef. Add the layer of onions. Add the bell pepper.Pour the tomatoes over the mixture.
- Bake for 2 hours at 350 degrees F.
