This was good and is great for days when you do not have a lot of time to make dinner.

This is a good and tasty recipe. I put the vegetables into the slow cooker with the beef and let everything cook all day. When thickening the sauce, I leave the lid off of the slow cooker and let some of the liquid evaporate.

My mother introduced this to me. So mouthwatering I can never wait for it to be done. I've used canned tomatoes and also rotel.

Incredible dish and so easy to make! I used top sirloin steak but didn't change another thing! Will be a keeper in our household!

I make this regularly. Serve over rice and with wheat rolls and corn. Only change I make is using tomato sauce instead of diced because of the picky eaters in my house.

I have this on a regular basis....I make it exactly the way the recipe says and it always turns out perfectly. I serve mine over hot fluffy rice. My husband and son love it, and the leftovers (if any) are really good. Great dish!

This Is wonderful! I used a round roast, as that is what I had in hand, and the canned diced tomatoes. It turned out so good, and I will make this again. Served mine with buttered noodles. Yummy!
