A generally good recipe. However, this is a waste of fresh mushrooms. The other flavors totally overpower the mushrooms. You can see them, but you can't taste them. Maybe add canned at the last minute. I'd also cut down the 3.5 hours cooking tine on high. I'd take it down to under 3 hours on high.
Very tasty! Should recipe read 3.5 - 4 hours on HIGH because it took about 8 hours on low?
