Life circumstances are such that, here lately, I don't have much time to cook in the evenings, but I can run home at lunch to start getting dinner ready - and, thus, I've been looking for more slow cooker recipes that don't require much prep work before they enter the slow cooker. I found this recipe through cooking light, and altered it some to our tastes and to a Cook's Illustrated article - and the final product came out great! It was easy, doable over a lunch break, and very, very, very tasty.
