Aton family Teagarden Steak

I received this recipe from my cousin Bev Aton when I got married 42 years ago at a recipe shower. She had gotten it from some of our great aunts and it is a wonderful and easy comfort food recipe!!! Serve this over mashed potatoes or boiled potatoes or rice.

Crumble one pound( I usually use 1 1/2 pounds) lean ground beef in a saucepan, Add 2 cups of water, salt and pepper to taste. Chop one small onion, Add to ground beef mixture. Add seasoning salt, garlic salt and seasoned pepper(Lawrys) to taste. Bring to a boil, turn down heat and let simmer for at least 2 hours. Serve over potatoes or rice and top with a big dollop of sour cream.. Yummy on a cold winter's night...
