  1. This is a big hit in our house! Tastes amazing. Left overs get used to make pies the next day, with mashed potato. Love it!

  2. This was amazing. So tasty!. I served with mashed cauliflower and low carb edamame noodles. I reduced the amount of sugar also and it was perfect

  3. 5 stars
    Oh yeah.
    This was yum.
    The smell gets you about the 3 hour mark and then you salivate for the rest of the day…
    The beef is sooooooooo tender and just fell apart (I used chuck steak).
    I know I will be doing it again.
