This is a fair recipe. The taste was ok, but 7-9 hours is way too long for cooking in a crockpot. After 5 hours the meat was falling apart. Added the sugar and crushed cookies, etc., and it quickly turned to looking like SOS. eee gods! The sauce was too thick because the meat melted in the gravy and the onions made it lumpy. I will try this again using cut up chuck, less cooking time to keep the integrity of the meat and will use onion powder. And I will add half the cookie crumbs. I'll review again.

I have the same recipe from a Betty Crocker magazine and this is wonderful! Always a hit. I serve it with boxed spaetzle, usually with brussels sprouts on the side. Thanks for posting!
