    I wouldn't call it cajun, but it is quick and easy and delicious - I put all ingredients in the crock pot on low for 6 hours and omit corn starch step. I serve it on egg noodles

    This was horrible. My husband usually eats anything with beef in it, and he wouldn't eat this. The flavor was definitely not like any Cajun food I've ever eaten.
