Pasta lovers will savor this sweet and sour specialty over noodles. Chock-full of tender beef, sliced carrots, green pepper and onion, this stew-like sauce from Beth Husband of Billings, Montana is also a hit over rice.

MY REVIEW

Smelled too strong of molasses so I didn't think we were going to like it. But...we did like it, LOL. Didn't have the strong smell when warmed up.

Served over white rice with sweet corn on the side. Perfect transition from summer into fall dish. Used up some molasses too!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 16, 2011

Made this in the crockpot last night. Turned out better than expected. I'm feeding 2 men and myself and had barely any for leftovers. Double the recipe and servce on top of brown rice with steamed broccoli. I may add a little less of the molasses next go around, just because it was a hint too sweet. But overall, this is a very tasty and gluten free dish!
