  • 2 braeburn apples, chopped
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 sweet onion sliced into rings

  • 3 tbsp crushed red pepper
  • 5 cloves of garlic, minced
  • sea salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp corn starch

1. Combine all ingredients in the crock pot except constarch. Put the onions on the bottom.
2. Cook on high 4 hours or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
3. Remove 3/4 liquid from crock pot and put on medium heat on stove for 15 minutes until some of the liquid has absorbed. Slowly add cornstarch until it becomes a gravy thickness.
4. Add sauce back into crockpot and let cook for an additional 30 minutes over low.

I shredded what i didn’t eat and put into individual servings to eat during the week. This would be great for salads and sandwiches.
