      Excellent! I only made a few very small changes. I used two onions instead of four, used dried thyme instead of fresh and instead of baking it in the oven, poured the entire thing in the slow cooker. I cooked it on low for about 6 hours and it was wonderful! I served it with mashed potatoes and the family was very impressed. Thanks for a new favourite.

      This was certainly an interesting dish. I dropped the prunes since my family doesn't care for them. Very good. Zaar World Tour 05
