This recipe is great!!! Thank you!!! The only thing that I changed was I added more apple cider because I like extra sauce. I serve this over white rice and my fiancee and I love it!!!
Really enjoyed this. A touch on the sweet side for me, so I think next time I will substitute chicken broth for a bit of the apple cider.
What size slow cooker should be used please?
I use my 5-6 quart slow cooker, but it depends on the size of your roast.. Happy Crocking!
