MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 20, 2013

Very yummy! I substituted beef broth for the beer and I braised them in the oven for 2 hours instead of cooking in the slow cooker - the sauce cooked down so it wasn't necessary to thicken it at the end. Loved the sauce. Definitely a keeper!

My entire family, including two picky kids, really enjoyed this meal. They voted it a "keeper" and have already asked for it again. Yummy and super simple - great combination.
