  1. We found this to be pretty ordinary. It was good, but my carrots were not done, so I had to cook it longer. Thank you for posting, but I don't think I will be making this again.
  2. I am not sure why, but we did not care for this all that much when it was first cooked - the only change I made was to use my own gravy, as we need to watch sodium, as well as to use no-salt seasoning with just a touch of salt. But a few days later I reheated the leftovers, and swirled a good spoonful of mascarpone into the gravy - that smoothed out the flavor and made the gravy good enough to slurp. It's all a bit of mystery and I will try this again some time when I perhaps won't be so distracted, in case it was something I did.
  3. This made a very tender piece of meat and was very well flavored. I had a small problem with the gravy, I didn't get any, LOL. I'm taking the blame for this as I didn't have canned gravy and made some up using a gravy mix. It just sort of vanished in the cooking and I ended up with a thin semi clear broth like juice. Now, I could have removed the meat and veggies and thickened that juice with more gravy mix but I was just too lazy and I am in no way blaming the recipe. It still tasted great! I used whole tiny Yukon Gold spuds. I'll make this again but be sure to have the ask for gravy next time.
  4. This is delicious. My family really enjoyed this meat-and-potatos meal. The steaks were cooked so tender and flavorful! Thanks for sharing.
  5. REALLY enjoyed this meal - it was simple to throw together, made the house smell fabulous all day as it cooked, and was tender, delicious and filling! Hubby has already asked me to keep this recipe and to make it again. I followed the directions exactly - cooked on low for 7 hours - came out perfectly! Made for 1-2-3 Hits Tag Game 1/14/09.


  1. WC - this is a GREAT family meal! Due to the kids I used a tomato puree instead of the stewed tomatoes (hidden from view) and used beef gravy I had made myself and frozen. Was cooked perfectly in 7 hours in the crockpot! Tender meat and veggies (added extra carrots) with lots of gravy! Perfect for our family! Thanks for sharing. Glad I tagged you in 123 Hits!
