    This sounds yummy! We don't have a dutch oven, but we have a crock pot. . . .I wonder how it would work in there . . . ?

    I would think it should work really well in a crockpot.

    set it on low and let it slow cook 3-4 hours possibly?

    also if you have boneless chops it would work too....
