Hi. . . This recipe sounds delicious! Since I’m a Jew, keep kosher, do you know if this would work with chicken or beef?

I’m sure this is a weird question, but I only have a 5qt slow cooker, and the recipe states I should use a 4qt. Will I get similar results with my 5qt?

A mortar & pestle would work to crush tapioca. A coffee grinder would also do it.

It looks like there are green onions in the picture, but I don’t see green onions in the ingredients…? Is the picture a true reflection of what this should look like?

Mine turned out very soupy…more like a stew. It looks nothing like the picture : (
