I made this, but didn't use the slow cooker method. I coated the meat in a flour, garlic salt and pepper combination and then browned it. Then I added the other veggies and let them cook for a bit, until tender. Then I added the remaining ingredients, covered it and let it simmer for about an hour. So delicious and tender!!! I served it with mashed potatoes and gravy, that I thickened from the sauce, and corn on the cob. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT 7.
Photo may be seen here in the Savor gallery: www.annacia.com .You just have to love the crock pot. This came out great and DH even had two servings. Tender enough that no knives were needed and lots of rich flavor. I included 4 whole carrots (young organic ones). The sauce was delish with the noodles. Yummy :D. Made for ZWT 9
A delicious and comforting crock pot meal. The recipe was reduced to 4 servings. I added in a couple of carrots that were cut into 1 inch chunks. The onions, celery and meat were browned for added depth. This was served with Creamy Polenta for a delicious and comforting meal. I would definitely make this again. Made for ZWT7.
