“As a full-time working mom, I am always looking for really good recipes for my crock pot. I am always skeptical about slow-cooker recipes but this one is a winner. Again, I am always willing to go the extra mile with ingredients and preparation if I think it will be worth the effort. This one works well on a weekend or if you put it on during your lunch break since you cook it low for 4 hours only. I served this with a parmesan couscous tossed with diced artichoke hearts and lemony green beans topped with tomato and basil feta cheese. This one is company worthy, I was impressed and that doesn't come easily for me!”
