I don’t know why I fall for Pinterest hype. Every recipe posted is “the greatest thing you’ll put in your mouth!!!” lol I was lured by the simplicity and sweet appeal of this recipe. Tried it…it was good but not blow your mind fantastic. I made it on the stove top instead and simmered it for about 45 minutes. And it doesn’t include vegetables, so I added some orange peppers at the end which I think complemented the sweet sauce. Maybe it would have been better if I made it in the slow cooker. If you’re looking for something super easy and a little different to make today, give it a try but don’t expect it to change your life. Teehehee!
