I was looking for an easy, good recipe for my beef and this one fit the bill very nicely, thank you! The only thing I did different was cook this in the crockpot! The sauce turned out lovely. Thanks so much!
We really enjoyed this recipe. I wasn't too crazy about the sauce, however; and my fiancee doesn't like sour cream, but we LOVED the meat. I used a full can of beef broth, russett potatoes and 1 clove garlic. The carrots had a really good, almost sweet flavor to them. I have a tendancy to dry out meat, but this turned out really tender and wonderful. I think next time I make it I'll add a little seasoned salt to the meat. We will definately make again.
Mmmmm! This is a great recipe! Perfect comfort food for a brisk winter evening. The only thing I changed is adding whole button mushrooms and crushed garlic to the vegetable array. Everything came out tender and juicy and the sauce is exquisite. Thanks for sharing!
