This one is a big favorite in our house. Makes a great gravy -- perfect for sopping up with a hunk of rye bread!

just like mama used to make! this is great in the crockpot, 5 minutes of prep, i let it cook for 10 hrs on low, which was actually too long, so we just shredded it added the gravy and it was delicious. some of the kids put it on hamburger rolls, we ate it with french bread. thanks mirj
