Very good. I used venison rather than beef.

I've made this recipe many times over the years and it is a family favorite. Incidentally, I got this recipe before there was a website.

I got this recipe from my mom and love it! It lasts us through a dinner and couple of lunches. My husband and toddler son eat it up!

Our family really liked this recipe, but I altered it a bit. I only added about 1/4 cup of water and I used venison cutlets instead of beef roast. If I had added any more water, I think the sauce would have been too thin to stick to any meat. We will definitely make this again!

I made this recipe for my family because we are always very busy. The slow cooker does all the work, and when we're ready to eat, all we have to do is load up a hamburger bun with the meat we want and enjoy. Cooking everything in the slow cooker makes clean up easy as well.I've reviewed my experience with this recipe on my blog here, where I frequently feature my experiences making different ToH recipes. http://lynettecornell.com/?p=349
