    Michelle S.'s Note:

    Another delicious recipe from my friend Hazel. When she served this everyone around the table was going "mmmmm"! I have served this MANY times and always get asked for the recipe when I do. This isn't a fast recipe, but well worth the time it takes to make it!

      Out of this world delicious!! The flavor or the broth, burgundy wine and Italian dressing was scrumptious. I couldn't stop tasting it. The meat was very tender and easy to shred. I used toasted onion rolls to make the sandwiches with. Delicious! I just added a salad and a glass of merlot for the adults. Thanks for a great meal.

      This was absolutely terrific. I served it on plain old hamburger buns, cause that's what I had around. Absolutely no leftovers here - in fact my husband called me at work the other night, fussing because he thought there would be some left in the fridge and he was craving it.

      Delicious! I simmered the meat for almost 5 hours, and actually all I had to do was break up the meat a little with my hand potato masher! I did have one problem though, and it's probably my fault - I lightly salted and peppered the meat before browning it, so it was a bit on the salty side. I won't do that again next time! I served it on crusty Kaiser rolls,and sauteed some thick onion and green pepper slices to top, and bought slices of mozzarella. Also bought some peppericini,and made a side of buttered pasta with Parmesan. A very hearty meal.(even the Kiddo ate her whole sandwich - a rare thing indeed!) Thanks!
