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
OK, it seems that everyone wants to know what this recipe really is. DH and I think it is more like a goulash. I served it over noodles. But I need to let everyone know that I did add lots of water while cooking. Don't know if using my cast iron skillet made a difference or not, but it sure used up the liquid fast. Because I added lots more water I also increase my chili sauce. This has a great taste. I'm so glad you posted this recipe Boomette 1
I have to agree with the other reviewers that this is not really a stew! So moist with just a little spicyness. WoW the meat was sooo tender. I did use an extra tablespoon of chili sauce becase we like our food spicy. Also used Italian bread to soak up the gravy! Thanks for a delicious recipe Boomette1
