Good -- I followed the recipe, except that I added the tomatoes and peppers at the beginning, and cooked everything for 8-1/2 hours, then thickened the sauce on my stove top. It turned out well, will make this again.
add 1 can beef broth also and drained tomatoes
Delicious sauce. Did not thicken with corn starch, and it was perfect over noodles.
Added 14 oz can of diced tomatoes and few slices of peppers on top of onion mixture and slow cooked on high 4 hours. Then added thick red and green pepper strips and tomato wedges on top and cooked another hour.
it tasted great and i will definitely make it again. i have shared it once already to me it seemed to not have an adequate amount of liquids for cooking 5 - 6 hours. i doubled the liquid ingredients.
OMGoodness, this is excellent!!
