This is a super, simple crock pot dish!
Who doesn't love coming home to a delicious smelling house with a meal in a pot ready for your family?
I love using my crock pot, but many recipes I've found need lots of ingredients, lots of preparing and usually MUST be put in the crock pot early morning in order for it to be ready for a reasonable dinner time. I don't know about you, but sometimes things don't go as I planned for a smooth morning and getting that meal in that crock is not going to be happening as I hoped!
That's why I am extremely cautious and conservative when it comes to crock pot meals. I hate, really hate dry meat!
This meal is not dry, has only 5 ingredients, and is ready in 3 hours! I literally put this recipe together at about 2 in the afternoon and it was ready by 5! So on those days when you just can't get things together for an early preparing in the crock pot, this is a perfect alternative!
