Cover and cook on low for low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 4 hours

If you like a little kick, add some red pepper flakes.
I have made this recipe with all of the following cuts of meat and it works great: Sirloin steaks that I cut myself, stew meat, fajita meat (those two are already sliced) and flank steak, which you can again cut yourself or ask the butcher to do it for you.
On the Trim Healthy Mama plan? Substitute the brown sugar with Swerve brown sugar, or ½ cup of Truvia or 3-4 Tablespoons Super Sweet Blend, depending on your tastes. And, instead of using the cornstarch, you can use glucomannan. The conversion would be 4 teaspoons, but I think you could get away with 2-3. Just stir it into the sauce.
