Reviews forSlow-Cooked Beef
"This recipe is great. I didnt do anything different and I"ve made it twice , its turned out really good and my family who loves old world food raved about it..Mine doesnt turn out nicely sliced looking like the photo but it tastes great.."
"This is very yummy! And very convenient in the slow cooker. Just our observation...even though it says it serves 12 people, I would say it serves more like 6.~ Theresa"
