This is the perfect recipe for a Sunday morning, or anytime you have leftover steak and potatoes. We have made it many times without the beets, but now I am in the habit of just roasting a few beets the night before. I thought the recipe got it's name from the color of the beets, but as legend goes, a red flannel shirt would be all Ms. Davis wore when she prepared this dish! It’s hearty and yummy and the whole family will love it!
