No bad, but needs wok. The only change I made was that I browned the meat in a frying pan first, sauteed the onions and garlic. In my opinion, crock pot meats should be browned first, then put in, much more flavor is developed that way. The flavor was good, but it needs more thickener than 2 T. of flour. The sauce was very thin. If you like crock pot cooking, give it a try! Thanks!
