One of my favorite crock pot recipes. Great for cold winter nights when the days are short and the nights are long dark and cold! Warms you from the inside out! From bettycrocker.com This note is on the website with this recipe: Note: "This recipe was tested in slow cookers with heating elements in the side and bottom of the cooker, not in cookers that stand only on a heated base. For slow cookers with just a heated base, follow the manufacturer’s directions for layering ingredients and choosing a temperature."
