Default Slop.

A woman who comes to the house rather often was discussing her Detriot, MI area family eating slop when she was growing up.

It had fried beef and corn on bottom with onions and other stuff all cooked.

Then mashed potatoes on the top and then cooked in a casserole like baking pan in the oven. With tomato sauce over the top.

Never heard of this while living in Wisconsin, Minnesota nor in Illinois. Nor when a teen in Reno, Nevada where people came from all over to work for warehouses and gambling related businesses.

Just came over from the post about the Chop House. This recipe sounds great to me. Says a lot about my food preferences. Not a food snob here. Just good comfort food at reasonable prices, please. Bring on the slop!

Sounds like Shepard Pie: ground beef w/onions and gravy, layer of corn covered with mashed potatoes minus the tomatoes sauce

Lived in Michigan for 50 years the only slop ever mentioned was those who slop the pigs. Never had it served at our table, but some food items in the service could fit the bill

Shepherd's Pie (Cottage Pie) - Life In The Lofthouse

The Michigan family that this woman comes from is English/Irish so maybe that got it from a grandmother or grandfather from the Old Country.

What the author refers to is Chinese Pie. It has nothing to do with China, and originates in Canada. I've eaten it for decades, it's very tasty, and easy to prepare. Here's a link to the recipe: 'Chinese' Pie Recipe | Allrecipes

Sounds delicious minus the tomato sauce.

It does sound a bit like shepherd’s pie, except for the tomato sauce on top. (But then, catsup is good on shepherd’s pie.) Perhaps there aren’t many shepherds in Detroit. Or sheep! The original shepherd’s pie, in the UK, was so called because it used lots of minced mutton and no beef. It was something tender to do with the meat when a sheep in the herd died. (There were many centuries when sheep in the UK were raised primarily for their wool, and eating lamb was a waste of a potential wool producer.) Mutton is tasty, if a bit sheepish in flavor. Nice in a curry. I used to see it (from New Zealand, frozen) in the grocery store when I lived in England, but I’ve never seen mutton for sale here. I suspect that a lot of it ends up in dog food.

It kind of sounds like some version of Shepards pie.

I'm from Minnesota....years ago when crockpots 1st came out a woman told me about a dish (now my memory might fail a bit) that one could make in it. It had green beans, hamburger (that had already been fried/crumbled) then topped with mashed potatoes. I don't recall if then tomato sauce was poured over it or if creamed soup of some type OR if it had a name (but slop doesn't come to mind). We had it maybe once or twice then it was history. Kiddos were very young and at a finicky stage (guess the parents were too) but this sounds somewhat similar to what the OP is talking about.
