This is an easy, basic recipe my family and I really enjoy. The long cook time ensures the meat will some out tender and full of flavor. If there is any sauce left I like to spoon it over mashed potatoes like a gravy. It's wonderful!

We really liked the flavor of this dish and the tenderness of the beef. I think I will try serving it over noodles the next time I make it. Served this with Jody's steamed broccoli with cheese and mashed potatoes and her wonderful pumpkin cake for dessert. Great meal!
