Fantastic meal! You said to vary and I did. I used pork tenderloin, added some crushed garlic, a shallot and mushrooms. I cooked it in my small slow cooker. I served it with liguini. I tell you this recipe is worthy of company. It's a keeper; thanks for posting.I made this for Australian/New Zealand RECIPE SWAP September. Rita
