Reviews for Hearty New England Dinner
"WE love this recipe! My 7 yo loves it as well. Only thing I do different is I only cook the cabbage about 20 minutes as we prefer it crisper!"
"So easy and nicely flavored. I cooked it longer (a total of 12 hours) and it was so tender even my mom, who has trouble chewing could eat it."
"This is a good recipe but other than the horseradish it not a unique recipe. I currently don't have a crock pot so did this in the oven. The meat would probably have been more tender and moister in the MW."
"My favorite. I've made a few changes to fit my taste but even without my adjustments this dish would be good. A definite keeper."
