I loved this! But then again, I do like my food sweet sometimes, and this is sweet. It does not taste anything like it was cooked in ketchup, it is much more complex. Although, I have to admit, my mother did add ketchup to her stews and goulash. I served it with mashed potatoes. Made for ZWT 6.
It didn't hit me when I read the recipe, and it didn't hit me when I made the special trip to the store and bought the LAST jar of Coleman's mustard, but as I was putting it together in the pot, it finally sunk in. "Vinegar, brown sugar and tomato paste... that's ketchup!" So this is basically beef sitting in ketchup and mustard. And it's okay, but for us, it just wasn't what we were looking for. I'm sure lots of folks will love it -- the meat certainly was tender. Just not our cup of tea.
