When do you add the mushrooms?
Can you use a dutch oven instead of a crock pot? If so – what temp and how long? Thanks -this recipe looks great!

Yes, I’m sure it can be used! I haven’t tried it though, I always use a crockpot, so I don’t know about the temp and time.
Hi Carol, Did you try this in the dutch oven? I’m going to try it today, but I’m curious about temp and time also. Thanks!
I would like to try this but 1 T salt sounds like too much. I don’t like salty food, maybe 1/2 t.
Is there a version of this for the instant pot?
I don’t have IP instructions yet! However, it should be easily adaptable; just look at your appliance instructions for this specific cut of meat. Enjoy!
