I love sweet potatoes, looks like a yummy combination. Can't wait to get out the slow cooker! It also has Crasins in it, I've never used them with brisket.

This recipe is bland. It lacks zing. You can consider adding some zing by including a jalapeno pepper or 2 and some fresh ginger. And, by the way, please at least try making the recipe first and then posting your comments about it. You idiots need to get a freaking life! IMO, of course!

The best in the west. I love using my slow cooker and this recipe really fits the bill. Really easy to prepare and the finish meal is really outstanding and healthy.

Not complicate and very healthy.

What about nutritional values for all recipes????

Yes, I agree! Hard figuring it up in your calories counter without inputting the whole recipe. What a pain....

Hi there, I would like to try this, but would like to know if the orange gets peeled. please let me know!!

In my opinion, I wouldn't peel it cuz you just put through strainer in the end and I think the peeling would impart good flavor. Can't wait to try this recipe!
