This is a delicious way to use beef stew meat. The meat got very tender during cooking and the sauce was very flavorful. I only added half the brown sugar since the ketchup is already sweet. I served over egg noodles. Thanks for the lovely recipe!

This dish is very good. The only change I made was I had Smoked Paprika on hand, instead of regular. Not sure how much difference that made. I think next time I will try less/no brown sugar just to try that out, but we do like it as is! Thanks for sharing. :O)
