This recipe is amazing.  The Shirley J products season it beautifully.  The sauce is deep and rich and there is no cream of mushroom/chicken soup in it.  My husband and I both loved this dinner and I'm going to be making it again soon.  5 stars.

  1. I adapted this recipe slightly, cooked it on HIGH for 4.5 hours and what I got was one of the best slow cooker meals I ever cooked. My BF literally licked the plate.
