    This is FANTASTIC! i think more peppers & garlic would be good, tho. ;) Just let this cook on low...and you will be rewarded with delicious melt in your mouth yumminess. A friend stopped by so mine actually cooked at a bare simmer for 2 hours. You can't rush this or your meat will be tough. Delicious! Made for my Zany teammate during ZWT6!
