Recipe by Lexuslady

This recipe has been in our family for years. Anyone who I have made this for raves about it. Put the ingredients together, throw it all in one pan and in four hours it is done and tastes great! It has a bit of a kick to it. It is great for football games, parties and just for you. Enjoy.

I cooked it in the crockpot overnight and it was amazing. This is such an easy recipe to make.
