    twinsplusonemom's Note:

    The first time I made this, my kids walked in from school, ooohhing and ahhhing at the delicious aroma. They were begging for "schnibbles"! Adapted from "The Dinner Doctor" cookbook, it has a great zippy flavor that the entire family will love!

      I used healthy request tomato soup and splenda brown sugar. I cut up yukon gold potatoes and carrots put them on the bottom of a crock pot and added meat and soup mixture. I cooked on high for 5 hours, seperated gravy and refrigerated it over night and removed as much solidified fat as possible. I put it all back in crock pot and added vinegar mixture,reheated on low. It was absolutely wonderful.

      My family enjoyed this - the meat was very tender and flavorful. Next time I will cut down on the amount of vinegar - I thought it made it too tart, but was able to correct it by adding some extra brown sugar. Will definitely make this again
