Top Review by Laudee
I guess we're okay to review Zaar recipes. Anyway, here goes! I can't believe no one has given this recipe a try. It's fantastic in ease of preparation and the end result is a tender, tasty, yummie-good cut of beef! I followed the directions right down the line and cooked it in a hard anodized aluminum dutch oven. Came out perfect. You guys don't know what you're missin if you don't cook and serve this for your next meal! Definitely a 5-Star Winner! Laudee C.
