This was delicious! It made a lot, I am planning to use part of the leftovers to make a pizza, some to make a salad and freeze the rest in portions. I made it as the recipe directs except for adding all of the cooking juices back in. I just added enough to reach my desired sauciness! I will certainly be making this again!
Yum! Delicious and a little on the spicy side. My husband loved it! I halved the recipe for a small roast and cooked it in the crock pot. Turned out great.
