I can't believe more people haven't come across this recipe! It is outstanding! Instead of whole tomatoes I used one can of petite diced tomatoes including the juice. Also, we didn't want potatoes so I sauteed some spinach and tossed with some spaghetti. Excellent meal.

very easy to make if only you follow the steps, first i had to brown it by piercing it with meat tongs or fork to bring out the juice frm the beef. Thereafter, poured the tomato mixture over d beef and topped it with one bay leaf. very delicious with nice aroma served it with mashed potatoes, Excellent.. will make it over and over again

I thought it was just ok. I cooked in a crock pot, so some of the meat was not submerged. I think that took away from the fall-apart factor of the meat.. The sauce needed some thickening. I served over egg noodles for my husband, and the sauce was too runny to work well. If I were to make again, I would add some flour or cornstarch, choose a smaller pot, and possibly splash a dash of Worcestershire. The bay leaf from the other reader sounds like a good idea too. Except next time, I think I'll just try something new.
