Cut the recipe in half and used a small beef roast I had in the freezer. This was a perfect use for it. Smelled heavenly and tasted the same. My crock pot is out of commision right now, so cooked it on the stove top. Brought the liquid up to a nice fast simmer, covered the pot and turned the heat down to almost nothing. Was tempted to lift the lid, but didn't. Cooked for 5 hours. Came out perfect. Thnx for posting, Tearanii. Made for My-3-Chefs 2008
