About this recipe: A super-delicious sandwich. Beef steak is pan-seared, then cooked in a slow cooker with a sweet and tangy tomato sauce. The steak is then shredded and served in toasted burger buns.
Tried it but I think my slow cooker is the issue. Hand me down from Mum circa 1960's. So will try again! - 02 Oct 2016
this was REALLY good!! About 3/4 way through the cooking time I took the steak out to chop it and almost threw it out, the sauce looked so watery and lacked flavor. but i went ahead and chopped the meat up and let it cook another hour and a half. so glad i did because it ended up being delicious. DH loved it. Only thing I did different was double the tomato paste, because i had a can and didn't want to waste it. also added an extra tablespoon of sugar to balance out the extra paste. Would have rather had it over noodles or rice instead of sandwiches, but that's personal preference and i will make it that way next time. thanks for sharing. - 31 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Honestly, I'm not crazy about crock pot recipes, but this is one I most likely will make again. The shredded meat remained tough after 7 hours on high, so I cooked it another 1-1/2 hours. IMO the tomato flavor really dominates the sauce, almost overpowering the flavor of the beef. I think some fresh chopped garlic and maybe even a little soy sauce would add some tang to this. Served on AR's Hamburger Buns along with cole slaw and baked beans. Overall, a solid crock pot recipe. - 15 Jan 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
