"I have made this recipe for years. It's delicious. We like it with egg noodles. It's good with chicken too. I always double the sauce so everyone gets enough on their rice or noodles"

"I make this recipe with boneless pork chops and it turns out great. My slow cooker cooks them in about 5 hours on low. I like that it uses ingredients that I always have on hand. The sauce is delicious and the chops are fork tender!"
