I prepared a modified version of this recipe before -- a combination of this recipe with another and cooked on the grill. It was a hit. But this recipe in the Crockpot is a TOTAL winner!! The only modification I made this time was to add 1 tsp of Garam Marsala [cuz I like Allspice]. I'm definitely making this again!
