This was very good, however it took long for the sauce to thicken in the crockpot. My husband thought the sauce was not sweet enough, but it was plenty sweet for me. I'd recommend this recipe, but use the stovetop method for thickening.

This was my first recipe using a slow cooker. It was really tasty, maybe just a little too sweet, but will make it again using less sugar. I scattered some roasted cashews on top and served with a rice pilaf. Yummy Lennie!
