Loved this recipe! Just used button mushrooms because that is what I had on hand. I did add a pinch of sea salt in addition to the specified amount! I cooked it over night; turned it off in the morning then turned it on again about an hour before eating! The meat melted in your mouth!

I made it tonight following the recipe. I thought it was very bland!! Definitely not a "keeper" for me.

I trim Chuck steak or roast and go from there. This is a good recipe and reminds me of food I ate grown up in rural Michigan in a family of 9 kids. Very good.

Haven't made this yet but it sounds like it needs more spices. I will add garlic and more Worcestershire sauce.

I used stew meat and it turned out great. The whole family enjoyed this meal. Will definitely make this again.

I only modified slightly using button mushrooms. I was a bit skeptical about the recipe as there was much in the way of complexity for flavor. Sadly, this was possibly the worst recipe I’ve ever attempted. The tips were like sawdust and had no flavor whatsoever.

Was nervous about using sirloin in a slow cooker, but tried it anyway because of the reviews. As expected, the meat was very tough and teasteless. The family wouldn’t eat it.
