* I love the slow cooker. Nothing is better then just throwing a bunch of stuff in there in the morning and not having to worry about dinner the whole day. This was great and so simple we just served it with some bread and a green salad and have a yummy simple dinner. I am sure that I would make this again sometime. I give it a 4 1/2
