So I am BUMMED... when I had everything in the pot I discovered we were out of liquid smoke! I used worsteshires instead. After reading the other review I decided to use vegetable broth instead of water, added a little extra carrot, celery, minced garlic, basil and pepper. I tasted it after cooking in the crock pot for 9 hours and it was perfect! I let it cook for almost 12 but I think it was totally done at 10. The consistancy was very "stew like" and I don't see why anyone would want or need to thicken it up... must be the difference between cooking it on the stove top and the crock pot. My hubby and three year old really liked it! Very simple, easy and tasty. Thanks for posting!
