Not sure where the name came from, but this is a very highly rated recipe on http://www.allrecipes.com! It was really good, but I think I prefer this one. I used three bags of Gardein Beefless tips in place of the beef, and then vegetarian “beef” broth in place of the beef bouillon. My house smelled awesome while this was cooking! Again, this was good, but I prefer the other one.
