This is now my Familys favorite meal... we have made it many times and never have leftovers.... great great meal
This was really good and oh so simple! The DH and I had to change our dinner plans after it had already been cooking for 8+hrs so I just popped it in the fridge over night... in the morning I just put it back on low... Turned out FABULOUS! Sweet... Tangy... We will be having this one again! Thanks so much!
Good stuff! I added potatoes, and at the end some cornstarch to thicken the sauce. I didn't have a stout beer but it still worked okay. Also I had to cook longer, more like 9.5 hrs.
