Putting this one aside for when real meat-and-potatoes buddies roll on through... in cold weather. I like having a few slow cooker recipes up my sleeve & this one fills the bill nicely. Use tough cuts of meat & tenderize yourself or have your butcher tenderize them (they can do it fast - I prefer their method). Serve with mashed taters, collards & buttery fresh dinner rolls & dinner's done! Adapted from Beverly Mills and Alicia Ross' Desperation Dinners via (of all places) the Miami Herald.
