Why Make It In a Crockpot?

It’s more flavorful:

  • Compared to cooking it in the oven, this recipe simmers in the crockpot for 4 hours. This allows the flavors to combine & mix perfectly. I really think this makes the recipe more flavorful than cooking it in the coven.

It’s easy to make ahead of time & keep warm:

  • If you’re making this recipe ahead of time to bring somewhere (party/potluck/etc.) it’s easy to bring it in the crockpot and simply keep it on the ‘warm’ setting until it’s time to eat.
  • Another benefit of this is that you can make this for a big holiday dinner and free up your oven.
  • OR even make it for dinner on a busy day and keep it warm until you’re ready to eat.
