From the Test Kitchen
*If you only have a 5- or 6-quart slow cooker, double the cooking liquid ingredients; reserve 1/2. Leave all other ingredients the same. Prepare as above.

I have made this recipe multiple times and is ALWAYS a crowd pleaser! By accident, I made the sauce as the liquid the meat cooks in overnight. This is how I make it each time. Enjoy!

This was really good, but I used beef broth instead of water & bouillon and I went with my gut and cooked it on low for 8 instead of 10 hours. 10 would've made it way too dry. 8 made it amazing!
