Just made this tonight and everyone loved it. Started South Beach this week and this was a great meal for phase one. Hubby isn't doing the diet, but he enjoyed the meat in a sandwich as a french dip. The juice and peppers are really a tasty combination to the meat. He added some cheese to his. I plan to make this again since there were plenty of leftovers.

Wow! We loved this recipe. Packed with flavour! I was afraid to put in the whole jar of pepperocinis so I put about 2/3 of the jar. Next time I will fearlessly dump in the whole jar. The peppers make the difference.

Without a doubt the best recipe i've tried so far at zaar!! I have made it 3 times for myself and friends. Wonderful flavor. I serve it on hoagie rolls. This is so easy. A real crowd pleaser. I can't wait to make it again!
