Lisa G. Sweet Pantry Gal


This is how the Italians roll for St. Patricks day!
My son hates corn beef, what better way to change up a St. Patricks Day dinner.
In this dish You have your sweet, savory, and tart! Very good and easy!
Crockpot makes it easy for those get togethers. Serve with rolls for hoagies or serve with a side of potatoes.
