I really loved the flavor of this dish!!! I used the small round steaks (not the most tender cut), and bullion instead of the broth (it was a good brand though). The "sauce", I thought was the best part--make sure you have nice crusty bread to go with this to mop up the juice!! I did thicken it a bit with a slurry of flour and water (about 3tbsp to 1/8 cup water). This was really good!!! Oh, and I DID use a crockpot!!! Thanks Sharlene!!!
My boyfriend and I absolutely loved it!!!!!Tasty , easy to make,and relatively quick cause my meat cut was thin so I only cooked it for an hour.Thank you very much.
This is a great recipe although I changed a few things. I didnt flour my meat, I grilled it first then cut it across the grain in tiny strips, I also used fresh roma tomatoes chopped up instead of canned...and I added in jalapenos sliced lengthwise for spice. Thanks!
