Never having tried a slow cooker before I wasn't sure how it would do. I was very happy with the results. I started it out on high before the recipe said for 6 hrs. on high or for 8 hrs. on low. Since I started my meal a little late, I decided on high. After 3 hours I checked it and thought it was bubbling too much, so I turned it down to low for the next 3 hours. The meal was perfect! Can't wait to try it again.
