    Yummy! I don't eat red meat so instead I used turkey bacon, swapped out turkey andouille sausage and left out the pork... Delish! Definitely needs to simmer all that time to let the flavors meld.

    This was a huge hit at our weekly football gathering. I did adjust the recipe a bit by substituting the diced tomatoes with diced tomatoes with green chili peppers, and went for regular smoked sausage rather than the low fat version. The chili peppers gave it a bit of a kick. Doubled the recipe for our crowd and served it with french bread. Definitely a keeper!

    Oh my gosh! There is so much flavor in this dish and it is so filling I didn't have room for the garlic bread I made to go along with it. I used three slices of thick cut bacon, doubled the thyme and rosemary because I used fresh herbs, added an extra sprinkle of salt and pepper, and subbed chicken breast for the pork. We are definitely making this again! It is perfect for a cold evening. :)

    Hearty, filling and full of flavor. I made the recipe exactly as written and it was delicious!

    One of our favorite slow cooker recipes!!! Fully of flavor and filling. Served with a salad and crusty bread.

    This is a really tasty winter recipe. It is very filling and comforting. I forgot to add the garlic but it was still delicious. I substituted cannellini beans for the Great Northern Bean as they didn't have any at my local supermarket. I also added a shallot to the onion mixture. I substituted smoked full-fat andouille pork sausage and used fresh rosemary and thyme (doubling the amount). I think this would have been tasty if white wine was added to the onion mixture after it was sauteed, prior to adding the tomatoes (it would have given it a little more depth I think). I omitted the cheese and parsley (which I think were unnecessary). As with most Cooking Light recipes, additional salt is needed.

    This was very, very good. It was a bit too thick, though. It might be because I mashed the beans too much. Next time I won't mash them much, or maybe I won't mash them at all.

    We have enjoyed this recipe twice now, and I am still trying to figure out how to help the pork. We like the seasoning of the dish as a whole, but the pork pieces are a bit plain. Next time I will try seasoning the pork before adding it to the crockpot.

    A wonderful meal to come home to! Everyone in the family loves it - including the dogs who helped themselves to an unattended crockpot! Seriously though, this is a wonderful meal for a cold winter day and the leftovers taste even better!

    I was very surprised with all the 5 star reviews here once I made it myself. i followed the recipe to a T and was very disappointed. It was very bland to me. I will try once more and add some heat to the stew by using a andouille sausage vs. smoked sausage and I think I may add a bit more spices as well. We shall see!!

    This recipe is a great start but in my opinion it really needs a deeper smoke flavor. Next time I will add a smoked pork hock. Also, I added a touch of red cayenne pepper, white pepper, a bay leaf and little more garlic, thyme and rosemary than this recipe called for and it was quite good. I think the smoked pork hock would bring it from good to fantastic.

    Instead of the pork and sausage I added 1 lb. of Chorizo (Spanish sausage) cut in coin-like pieces and also a lb. of spinach. It was delicious. I will make this again.

    Nice foundational recipe to work from. It was a great starting point with some minor revisions. I added a couple gloves of minced garlic and some red wine. I subbed hungarian smoked sausage (2-3 oz links) for the turkey sausage and boneless chicken thighs for the pork. I did not mash up 1/2 the beans - instead I cooked longer in the slow cooker - low and slow until it thiickened to the consistency I was looking for. I also added 2 types of beans for the textural difference: one can northern beans, one can broad / butter beans. Great wintertime dish and reheats really well!

    YUMMY!! Starting checking it after 3.5 hours, was done in 4. Didn't use the cheese or parsley at the end either

    Delicious as is- I used full-fat sausage and fresh herbs since I had them. Very hearty, full of meat, and I cook for a meat-lover! Next time I'll omit the pork- the sausage and the bacon are enough. Very flavorful.

    I thought this was great. Had lots of flavor. Had to sub some stuff with what I had on hand. navy and pinto beans, Kielbasa sausage, bay leaf, pepper flakes and ham bone. (used everything but the pork lion) little extra rosemary and thyme. Served with cheddar biscuits. The family loved it. will make again Thanks

    This was amazing! I have been looking for a five star recipe for a while now and I will be making this for every potluck I come to! I didn't measure my seasonings so I might have added more than it called for (some people complained about it being bland).

    Wow. Fantastic. Adding this to the rotation.

    Not worth the effort. Pretty bland.
