This is a nice side dish to any German entree, especially pork. It can be made in the crockpot, or on the stovetop.

I halved this recipe, but only used 1 Tbl. brown sugar, and 1 Tbl. balsamic vinegar and the amounts were perfect for us! SOOOOO very good!!! Oh, I also cooked a shallot in 1 1/2 Tbl. butter and added that, too. DELICIOUS!!! Thanks so much!! Made for the ZWT4 :)

Made half the recipe as posted to go with a nice plain meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Very flavorful and easy to make. Thanks for sharing lazyme. Made for your win in Football Pool Wildcard Week.

I really liked this. My kid really liked this. It doesn't taste canned by the time that it's done cooking. I can see using this often. Thanks.
