The basic idea is sound, but for best flavor the meat should be seared on all sides before slow cooking. Another reviewer said searing makes it easier, yet another said that couldn't be and just added a step. I've made this, and other beef recipes in a slow cooker and searing is needed, otherwise you just have boiled beef with spices. BTW, liquid smoke IS NOT Necessary, and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) is investigating the safety of liquid smoke as a food flavoring as being possibly carcinogenic.
