If I could have put anything lower than 1 star...that would have been more than this recipe deserved. I cannot believe I actually read this recipe and decided to make it because I wanted to do something easy in a slow cooker. This person must have been on some type of hallucination medication...and you know what I am talking about! This was the worst sauce I have ever tasted. Thank goodness I had a jar of Classico sauce in my pantry to save my family for dinner that night. I am warning you....never use this recipe. It is not edible. It's not fit for the bugs that live under my house to eat!! Please...for God's not make this sauce!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


We really liked this sauce! Scaled the dried seasonings down a bit since I am sure the author meant teaspoons instead of tablespoons. Found many of the other reviews to be cruel and out of line so I decided to give this recipe a try regardless of some of the mean spirited reviews.


I made this again using only 1 tablespoon of the spices, replaced thyme with basil, and then added about 1 tablespoon of brown sugar and it was much more to our liking.
