    I used to make this on the stove over very low heat, but since I got a crockpot, I use that. This is good served over white or brown rice.

      Sweet-toothed DH absolutely loved this. I added some dried cranberries, too, and used balsamico because that's what I had. Will make this again! Thanks for posting.

      This was very easy to make, and DH loved the taste. I used yellow onions that I sliced thick. Thank you!

      I made this as a take-home meal for my DS, I actually thought that he would have two meals out of it, but it has already been devoured totally and given high reviews!. I did increase pretty much all the ingredients, and added in some dried oregano. This is absolutely delicious, please do not omit the raisins, it really makes this dish! I plan on trying this with pork also! thanks echo!...Kitten:)
