RECIPE BACKSTORY
I have to give credit and thanks to ATLANTAKIM from allrecipes.com for this wonderful recipe. I'm always looking for DIFFERENT slow cooker recipes and this one is now one of my favorites, especially in the fall and winter. My only changes to this recipe are that I line the bottom of the slow cooker with sliced onion. You could add potatoes and carrots right in the slow cooker, or make oven roasted potatoes as the side. Add some beef broth if there isn't enough cooking liquid.
