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!!!
