This is the best recipe. My fiance would jab someone with a fork if they came near his plate. The flavor, texture and all around taste are perfect. I like that the recipe omits the tomato sauce, which other recipes include.

I have to say I was completely dubious at first, but this turned out REALLY well. I used an even cheaper cut of beef (chuck round)and it was great. In fact, I put the leftovers in a container and 4-5 days later i found them and they were even better...this is certainly a make ahead option. I served it with a quick spanish rice side dish and some fat free sour cream on the side. Thanks for a good one!
