"This is similar to the Cowboy Stew, and I give both a 5. Kids loved it, and it tastes good heated up the next day for lunch. I used Maple Brown Sugar flavored beans. I think next time I may substitute the beef for boneless pork ribs."

"My ratings are based on the kids reactions, and this one definitely gets a 5. I have seen several people saying theirs burnt, and I think some people are cooking it way too long. 8 hours should be more than enough. I would also recommend trying different flavors of beans with it. I used Maple Brown Sugar flavored. Even better, it tastes good heated up the next day too."

"Kid approved, so I gave it the five spoons. Anytime the kids gobble it down, you know it's good. I left the skin on, and there was plenty of juices from the chicken to keep this moist. I did not heat up the sauce first. I simply mixed it all together and put it in with the chicken on low for an hour. The sauce was excellent and tasted great over rice and peas. My biggest suggestion is that you double the sauce mix. There wasn't a lot of sauce left over. Basically you would need an entire bottle of chili sauce and one small bottle of orange marmalade. I plan to try the sauce with other recipes also."

"Let me save you a dinner and tell you this recipe is a complete disaster. Do not let the picture fool you, it turns out a pile of goo. This recipe is really really bad for a slow cooker. The good thing is that the sauce was great, so I will try this differently next time. I recommend boiling the ravioli like normal and making the sauce on the stove. Then you can either combine the two or simply top the raviolis with the sauce when you serve them."
