Enjoy a recipe from my Mammaw’s kitchen! She usually cooks this in a dutch oven, but here are instructions for a regular oven.

Arkansas Beef Casserole

2.5 lbs ground chuck
4 tbsp butter
2 small cans tomato sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic juice
10 oz medium egg noodles, cooked to al dente
8 oz cream cheese
16 oz. sour cream
4 green onions, chopped finely
2  small cans cream of mushroom soup
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Brown ground chuck in medium saucepan in butter.  Do not drain.  Add tomato sauce, garlic juice, salt, pepper, and sugar, and combine.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes.  In a separate boil, combine cream cheese, sour cream, 1 cup of shredded cheese, and green onions.  In 2 9×13 pans, layer noodles, ground chuck mixture, sour cream mixture, mushroom soup, and the rest of the cheese.  Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until bubbly.  Enjoy!
