Can I make this in the slow cooker?

Absolutely, and it’s delicious as well! Basically, it’s the same process except for place everything in slow cooker and cook on HIGH for 3-4 hours, or on LOW for 6-8 hours.

    I don’t ever use tarragon for any of my recipes and don’t want to go buy it just for this. Do you think it would still turn out okay without it? Or is there anything I can put in to replace it?

  2. Lina

    Hi Anna, You can use rosemary or dill instead! Or omit…Thanks !

  3. Karen Thompson

    Have you tried making this in bulk and freezing it?
