Delicious once it's ready, and easy to make - BUT this took almost 2 hours in my slow cooker... way longer than what is indicated here. Slow cookers are all different but I've never had a cook time vary by that much before. Yummy though, and will definitely make again whilst planning for a longer cook time!

Dear BHG,Please, please make your recipes print on one page. This may seem like a small thing, but is annoying enough to me that I did not print & make this recipe.
