This recipe comes from the Fix It and Forget It slow cooker recipe book – pg 250. I made this recipe with high hopes but fears of a burning mess in my crockpot – sadly I was correct. I don’t know if it’s my cooker or the recipe so…. I’m not sure I’d try cooking it in the crockpot again – maybe in the oven instead.
