This wasn't as flavourful as the crockpot recipe I normally use, but it was still good. I think it just lacked some spices. I will try it again and just add a some thyme or bay leaves. Thanks for posting.
Couldn't be any simpler. The only thing I did differently was, to braise it in my dutch oven in a low 325 oven for 3 hours. I don't really like the results of a slow cooker. No offense to Melissa's method though. My choice of liquid was chicken stock. :)
