What size slow cook­er is this recipe for?


Crock­pot lady, so dis­ap­point­ed!!! Made a spe­cial trip to gro­cery store just for ingre­di­ents. After 2 hours of crock­ing there is more liq­uid then a soup! I con­tin­ued crock­ing for 3 rd hour and still float­ing. The expense and the hope of hav­ing a group for din­ner has forced me to rate this recipe 1 star…and that’s high!!!! I will be toss­ing out.


I think there is a typo in the direc­tions, it should cook on HIGh not LOW. HIGH worked for me.
