Ok, I was ready to give this recipe a bad review, I didn't love it, thought the meat was dry and bland. I almost didn't feed it to my kids thinking they wouldn't like it either. However, I gave it to them and they LOVED it. My normally picky 4 year old ate the entire plate, that hasn't happened in...well, 4 years! I didn't add the instant coffee and I served it with a side of broccoli instead of peas, since my kids don't like peas. I added way more BBQ sauce than it called for too. I think I might try it again and this time not browning the meat prior...maybe that will help with the dry/bland taste?

This sounded like a good idea, but I was pretty unimpressed with the lackluster results. The flavor was pretty one-dimensional, and unappealing to me. I had to add some fish sauce for some glutamates and some extra salt to round it out a little bit. The coffee just added an unpleasant bitterness that I wished wasn't there. You'd get better results substituting the coffee with a dry sherry and substituting the barbeque sauce with a mixture of italian dressing, worchestershire sauce, and liquid smoke, IMO. I'd also add mushrooms for some natural glutamates.

I made this recipe exactly like the video said and she even says in the video it doesn't seem like a lot of liquid but it will be fine. Well i put it on and went to class and needless to say it burned and we couldn't even eat it, and yes it was on low.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from You need more liquid with this recipe. You need more liquid with this recipe. I doubled the BBQ sauce and added a cup of beef broth and it still wasn't quite enough. I can't imagine how dry the beef would have been if I followed the recipe exactly. Kraft should look at this recipe again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This was ok. This was ok. I did what someone else did, I mixed the juice from the meat with the bbq sauce and about a cup of water before I poured it over the veggies and meat. I cooked it on low for 5 hours and turned it up to high for the last 2 hours...that was a mistake. I think putting it on high made it turn out really dry. But the flavor and taste was good. Instead of adding the coffee since I didnt have any, I added a tablespoon of worchester sauce and slightly seasoned the meat with 3 shakes of Adobo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great crock pot meal and a unique twist on beef stew with the bar-b-q sauce added. Great crock pot meal and a unique twist on beef stew with the bar-b-q sauce added. My husband and I got three meals from the recipe and the last meal had been frozen. It did seem to taste better the second and third meal, probably because the sauce really set in to the flavor. I did 'cheat' a bit on the peas and added extra since the bag I purchased was a larger bag than the recipe specified, but it seemd to improve the meal. Love this recipe since it is easy and great tasting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was excellent! This was excellent!! I pretty much followed the recipe, with a few minor changes. I browned the meat with a little onion and garlic. I used fingerling potatoes and the small carrots you get in bags. I added a tablespoon of Worstershire sauce instead of using the coffee (got that tip from someone else that posted a review). I also added a small can of mushrooms when I put in the peas. I will be making this a lot this winter!!!

The recipe was so easy, I started the dinner before work and returning home, the dinner was ready and all I had to do was a salad. I enjoy having dinner ready when I return home expecially having a disabled child and don't have a lot of time to be over a stove. My husband and three children enjoyed dinner as I would have cooked all day. Thanks for helping a busy mom day enjoyable.
