"This was very good - might add 1 cup of beef broth (low sodium) next time instead of water, to give it a little more beef flavor. Also added carrots & potatoes on top and made gravy with left over juices for a complete meal."

"Taste of Home use to be real recipes by real cooks. This recipe is terrible. It's full of prepackaged, fake ingredients, artificial colors, artificial flavors, preservatives, way too much salt and is very unhealthy. Do not feed this recipe to your Family. Cook real food."

"My kind of crock pot recipe - quick and easy! Smelled so yummy and the meat just fell apart! Served with mashed potatoes and hubby put the extra gravy on everything."
