2-Tablespoons dried onion flakes or 1 large onion, peeled and diced.
2/3 Cup beef broth
Use a 4 or 6 quart slow cooker. Your food will cook faster in a larger crockpot because its not as full-just make sure you check it after 7 hours.
Dump everything into the pot. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for about 5-6 hours.
When the meat breaks apart with a spoon it is done.
You can serve it with mashed potatoes or roasted veggies.
We don't like the taste of maple so I used regular old syrup (like pancake syrup) and next time I would probably half the soy sauce it was a little strong for me (although Hubby liked it just the way it was). I also added a can of drained sweet potatoes on top the last half hour of cooking and then ate it in the sauce with the beef.
