Wonderful flavored sauce! Just before serving I thicken the sauce with 1 tablespoon of cornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons of water. I served it over spaghetti noodles. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Great recipe!!! Prepared as a participant in the May 2008 Aus/NZ Swap #16 Event.

YUM!! Perfect dish for all year round but especially summer time when we dig out our crockpots to beat the heat in the kitchen! Terrific no-fuss, delicious tasting meal!!


This was DELICIOUS and a real hit (especially for DH)! I thickened the sauce a little and serve over mashed potatoes and served with recipe#153063#153063 another wonderful recipe you posted. Thank you for posting and I will be making this again. Leftovers are going to be used for lunch today! Made for Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap #85 - Feb. 2014.
