Our ladies' group held monthly dinners at our church to raise money and this is one of the dishes we served. We never had to advertise these dinners - word about the good food got around quickly.

"I have made this recipe a handful of times and it always comes out moist and delicious. The beef is very tender and its very easy to put together. I serve mine with mashed potatoes or egg noodles."
