I can see why your husband loves this recipe. The green chilies add such a nice flavor to this dish. My 14 year old son made this while I was out of town visiting colleges with my daughter. We had the leftovers when I go back. It was fantastic reheated. I am glad I had him double the recipe because the three of them ate one whole flank steak. LOL We have 2 crockpots so that isn't a problem. These is a true keeper. These would be nice served on a hoagie roll with hot mustard.
I think the meat came out perfectly cooked and flavors were good, but could have been a little better. I would like to give this 3 1/2 stars if I could. Maybe a little more vinegar and chili flavor. Serving the juices with the meat was a must, I think thickening the juices and serving like a gravy would be really good too! Made for I recommend tage game, Sept. '08.
Sorry Polly but I found the recipe on the bland side. It was not tangy at all. I guess my taste buds are used to real spicy, tangy and kicking flavors. This didn't do anything for me. I will not be making this again.
