This recipe is pretty awesome, but I'm SURE they meant to say cook on LOW, not high, for 6-7 hours. I gathered all ingredients before I realized my crock pot is a 3 quart, not 6. So I made a batch yesterday on high and switched to low after about 4 hours when I noticed it was turning to mush. Today I made a second batch on LOW and it turned out PERFECT. Maybe it's the 3 quart vs. 6 quart, but I'd suggest LOW.
