This came from a cookbook I borrowed from the library and I am sorry I didn't write down the name of the book. We first made this in the dutch oven over the camp fire. Anything over a fire is good! But this is just as good done in the crockpot for 8 hours or on the stove for 35 minutes! I use a lot of garlic and a LOT of heat - so feel free to tone it down to your tastes!Enjoy - it's healthy!
