RECIPE BACKSTORY
I remember my mom making this :) I think this recipe came from her friends here in Ohio. From what I've heard it seems to be made in the Ohio, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Indiana region. I think the original recipe calls for veal cubes w/ the pork but we refuse to eat baby animals!!! But adult beef tastes good too :)
