WOW, this is really good! It is hard to describe, but I would say it is like Swiss Steak with a twist. It has BBQ sauce in it, but you can't really taste it. The only thing I did different was to add a dash of liquid smoke and some Tony Chacheries seasoning. It will be added to my rotation, Thanks for posting!!
My ultimate goal is to be a OAMC chef, but right now I seem to do well being a OAWC chef. I like to cook ahead for fast delicious meals. This stew is delicious. I used KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce (my favorate). The prep work couldn't be any easier. I had some of the stew over rice as directed. Very filling and flavorful. I found this dish had a buttery, smokey flavor to it. Thanks for sharing.
