WOW I am so glad I shared this recipe with you all. I know there are many versions of this but this is the way I have made it for the past 40 years.
I made it again today with the addition of 1 cup shredded cabbage and it was delicious.
Sometimes rather than doubling the recipe I add a beef bouillon cube and a couple of cups of water to stretch the broth.
Yes it can be made on the stove-top, I just prefer the longer slower blending of the juices in the crock-pot when time allows. I think it enhances the flavor.
Thank you all, your compliments made my day. XOxo MaLoney
