Loved this. I thickened the juices with some cornstarch though so that they would cling to the meat better. This is a definite keeper. I served it on sandwich rolls with provolone cheese. Next time I will add sliced tomatos, lettuce and thin slices of bermuda onion as well.

Tried this recipe this past weekend -- it is very good & very easy to make. I think I might add a little crushed red pepper next time for a little extra "zing" & maybe some extra garlic. I too thickened the juice with some cornstarch & served the meat on steak rolls with thin sliced onion & mild pepperoncini. Cheese would be yummy too! Added a tossed salad & the meal was complete. I highly recommend this recipe! -Mary

Delicious! I was searching for something to make in my new crockpot, and decided to give this a try. I'm really glad I did! I followed the directions exactly as given and served the sandwiches with Inez Willenborg's Tomatoes in Marinade. What a perfect pair! My husband gave it 5 stars as well! Thanks!!!
