My brother shared this recipe with me back in 2009, many years ago when I first started this blog. I felt the photo needed some updating as well as the directions based on the questions so I recently remade, reshot and updated the directions slightly. This makes enough for leftovers, which taste even better the next day. You can prepare this the night before and turn it on in the morning, leftovers freeze great too.

And since so many people ask what slow cooker I have, it’s the 6 Quart Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget Programmable Slow Cooker. I love it because you can adjust the time you want it to cook, and it automatically turns to warm when it’s done. It also has a probe for meat that automatically shuts off when done. I love it so much, I own three!
