I adopted this recipe because I liked the basic ingredients and believed I could adapt it for crock pot cooking. I have changed some of the ingredients and increased or decreased amounts to suit my tastes. I've also changed the cooking method entirely. After a little trial-and-error, I believe that I've developed a tasty new crock pot dish. Give it a try and tell me what you think!
Place all ingredients, except spinach, in crock pot in order listed. Cook on low for 6.5 - 7 hours.
Rinse spinach well to remove any trace of grit or dirt. One hour before the end of cooking time, add spinach to crock pot and stir in thoroughly. Continue to cook on low for 30 minutes - 1 hour until spinach is done to desired tenderness.
Serve with white rice and crusty bread. Plate and enjoy!
