This recipe has great flavor! If you didn't know what was in it, you would be guessing the whole time you are eating. The instructions call for adding onions but there were none in the list of ingredients so I just sliced up an onion. I also baked it in the oven at 300 degrees for 4 hours.My leftovers will be the basis for some great beef and noodles. I'm a personal chef and I'll be cooking this for a client this week. This recipe can cook while I'm making everything else.
This was a very hearty dish that presented well. One of my guests was a chef at one point in time and loved the gravy this made. The carrots were a little harder than suspected, as the sauce didn't go all the way to the bottom of the crock pot. I also added more flour/Wondra to the gravy as it wasn't thickening well enough for my taste. I served with sweet potato muffins (don't know the recipe # for this).
