We first saw Goetta on an episode of "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" and had to try our hand in making it. This recipe had lots of seasoning , which we like. My steel cut oats was really dry and sticking to my slow cooker before the first 2 hours of cooking was up. Added more water and the meat and cooked another 2 hours on low. Deliciously differemt! Thanks for sharimg. ~Fay from Montana
