Delicious! What a wonderful mix of flavors. I added potatoes and carrots an hour before it was done. My husband loved it but even more surprisingly, my non-meat loving kid ate her plate clean! Thanks. This will be going in my family faves.

Beautiful! The flavours permeated the meat so well - I can't remember enjoying beef as much as tonight! Thank you for a superb recipe!

I was a little wary of the spices used in this because I've never had them with beef. But wow! This was reaaly good. The next time I make it, I'll have to triple the recipe and freeze the leftovers. This one is a keeper! Thanx for sharing!
