I thought the taste was a little bland on this, but because my husband is so picky I didn't add the peppers which I suspect would have helped. The thing about this that I loved was it was so easy to make. I put the liquid in the freezer while I was shredding the meat and then skimmed the fat from the top. I then put it back in the crock pot for about 30 minutes to reheat. I will make it again simply because my husband liked it and it was easy.

This sandwich is okay. Could use less water.

Delicious! I took the provolone cheese suggestion and toasted it in the toaster oven until the cheese melted. My husband and I loved it and eat it that way every time we make slow-cooked beef. My already-picky-4-year-old even likes it!

My house smelled delicious for days. I served this on crusty vienna rolls, with the juices as an au jus.

I would definitely make this again--it was so easy and tasty. I couldn't find the pepper stir fry mix, so I just added a sliced green pepper.

These sandwiches turned out great. I followed the recipe as written and my family asked for seconds. There was enough meat leftover for the next day.

Excellent recipe! My family loves this served on Italian rolls with provolone cheese on top.

EXCELLENT! I was out of a seasoning mix I use and looking for a recipe that used the spices instead of a mix. Found this one and deviated slightly. I added an Aus Jur mix to the water and the last 30-45 min of cooking added some whole button mushrooms and served on the side with peppercinis. So good! Lot of broth left for soup!
