This was a great recipe. I did not deviate much; only used 6 lbs bone-in versus boneless. I cooked for 7 hours on low and they were perfect and absolutely delicious.

I've been making these since my kids were little and now that they're on their own own they want the recipe. One of our all time favorites!

Did not care for them when we ate them and then the aftertaste was extremely unpleasant.

Absolutely excellent meal! Made it with beef and pork before, both were excellent. Has anyone made it with chicken before?

How was this possible that this was rated 4.5 stars? It was very tart.....

I love this recipe. I've made it at least 6 times now. It's one of my favorites. I found this recipe in a 2000 T.O.H books. It's a keeper.Now I would like to make a comment to your April 16, 2011 reviewer "Your Worst Critic".First it seems like you had a bad day? You used very distasteful verbage. Most critics are mindful on how they phrase things. They critique what they don't like w/o offending people. Stop being imprudent. Most people watch what they eat so that they can have a delicous meal like this once in a while.Thank you Pam for this recipe.

Made this exactly as written except slow cooked for 7 hours. Meat was very tender (perfect infact) but there was a tangy taste that I didn't care for, maybe too much vinegar. It wasn't bad but I won't make this again.
