Just a note on time. Though this recipe is VERY simple, it does take time (that's why they call it slow cookin' baby!). Make sure to give yourself 8 hours for "marinating" time and 8 hours for cooking time. Sure, you could cut the cooking time in half by cranking the crock-pot up to high, but don't, take it slow, it will be well worth the wait....I promise!!
