    Halves easily. See uses below in the directions. The beef will hold on low in the slow cooker for up to two hours before serving. Or prepare beef completely up to 48 hours ahead and refrigerate then rewarm on the stove top over medium-low heat for 15 minutes or until heated through, or place in the slow cooker on low for 45 minutes to an hour or until heated through. You may cool the beef completely and freeze it (with cooking liquid) in an airtight container for two to three months.

      Recipe was so easy and and very yummy!! Thank you so much for sharing. I used about half the meat but kept the same measurements for the seasonings to give it a real nice flavor. I also added flour to thicken the sauce towards the end and it was amazing. Thank you so much for sharing.
