You really need to take the time to season the meat and brown it prior to adding to the slow cooker, otherwise it ends up bland and mushy tasting. I used 2 lbs of chuck roast cut into 1 1/2 inc...

My family enjoyed this recipe. I added 1/2 large sweet onion, chopped. I also browned and seasoned the stew meat before placing in crock-pot. I used Bush's Barbeque Baked Beans, 2 28oz cans, ...

This was a hit with my family! I didn't have the bar-b-que benas so I substituted 2 15oz. cans of pork & beans and added bar-b-que sauce to taste. Also, my husband tasted it about and hour befor...
