This was really quite tasty! I made this is my crockpot and the meat was fall apart tender. Here's how I did it in the crock pot: I sauteed the onion and garlic and added to the crockpot. I reduced the water to 3/4 cup, and increased chili sauce to 1/4 cup. I added everything but the flour coated beef and stirred well. I shook the beef in flour in a gallon sized ziploc and sauteed in oil. After browned I added it to the crock pot. I cooked it on high for 3 hours and then low for 3 hours. I thickened the sauce with a little cornstarch and water and served over mashed potatoes. There was plenty of sauce and no additional liquid was needed. This is such a nice "fix and forget" recipe. The house smells wonderful too. Thanks for sharing. Recommended. Made for ZWT4 Canadian Crockpot Challenge
