Yes yes! This recipes is AWSOME! I cooked these up this evening and they were sooooooo yummy good! Thank you for sharing such a great recipe. I have cooked them with BBQ sauce in the crock before. but i have to say this was much better! Wife and I enjoyed them and will make them again soon. Title is misleading but i did cook the sauce up first in a pan on the stove, then poured over the smokies in the crock and let them cook. They were so tender after being cooked in the crock.
Ok, I hovered between 4 and 5 stars for this one... it's very simple and not a complicated recipe. Knowing that DH isn't a fruit fan (and even less of warm fruit) but also that cranberries are further up the "...if I have to" ... list than most fruits, I had a feeling that DH would give this 2 and I would love it. Well ! surprise!!! there were just the two of us so I opened one can of smokies (they are called mini knackworstjes here)and we both liked them so much that I went back and added a second can because I had excess sauce. He and I demolished the lot between us! I used extra strong mustard and upped the lemon juice becuase I had fresh juice that I'd frozen into an icecube, and that cuts the sweetness of the sauce and turns it into an interesting mix of flavours instead of cloyingly sweet. DH and I are both revovering from a bug and feeling less than healthy and with two kids inside for several days exhibiting the worst symptoms of bordom and want of exercise, I just wanted a "fill us up" meal with the least amount of effort. I added a stir fry and hey presto ! Please see my rating system: This gets 5 stars becuase it delivered when I wasn't feeling up to working magic in the kitchen: speed, ease and taste ! .. and because DH said it would be nice to have "every few months"... which for a recipe featuring fruit, is a small miracle. Thanks !
