"There's no way that this recipe was rated 5 Stars. It was an awkward taste and my husband and kids ended up having Captain Crunch Cereal. I dont see how this won first place???"

"I make this dish on a regular basis and have to substitute very few ingredients to suit my tastes, it's wonderful and an easy way to impress your friends. I also like to substitute the beef ingredients for a chicken version that is almost better than with beef, try it out!"

"This is one of my favorite chuck roast recipes, I recently tried it using venison, it was great. My husband butchers his own deer and this is a great recipe to use the "smaller chunks"."

"When I tasted this recipe while it was cooking it was zippy and delicious! After I added the sour cream it became very mild. Next time I'll add less sour cream or just add a dab for garnish. It smelled fabulous as it cooked!"
