The original recipe came from Mable Hoffman's Crockery Cookery, and is my favorite slow cooker cook book. I have tweaked it a little.
This is so easy and the first part can be combined and put in the fridge the night before for all you working gals. If you put the ingredients in a disposable slow cooker bag (and put in a bowl in case of leaks)when you refrigerate the night before there is no clean up either.
I must have been making this for 20 plus years and it always comes out delish. It is one of my go to's.
