I made this in the crock pot. The stew is okay...good would be an accurate rating. The ketchup does not really do the trick. It was a little bland...some kind of flavor boost is needed.
The next day the stew was better after everything had a chance to meld. I added some hot sauce to give it some spirit.
I made this recipe yesterday in my crock pot. It was delicious! It was simple to put together and took no time at all. I added a tablespoon of Kitchen Bouquet to add a little color. It's a keeper in my house! thanks!
