I made this in the crockpot and cooked on low for about 8 hrs. My husband says he doesn't like it in tomato sauce, but my daughter really enjoyed it, hence the 4 stars. I'm sure a tomato affecionado would love this! Thanks Rita!

My family like this very much. I will reduce the tomato paste next time. I liked pounding meat in the bag. Meat was very tender. I will be making this again. Thanks Derf.

I enjoyed the recipe very much. It pretty much followed the recipe as directed, except I used a chuck steak instead of the round steak. I loved the blend of flavors, but think maybe I will leave off the peppers next time, but that is just a personal preference. The recipe is great just as it is!!!!! Thanks for this keeper.
