Footnotes

  • Editor's Note
  • To make this even easier, place the garlic into a bowl, and pour the tomato sauce into the bowl. Fill the tomato sauce can with soy sauce and pour it in the bowl, and use the can to measure out the sugar. Rinse out the can with sake and pour it in. Then proceed as stated in the directions.
  • Partner Tip
  • Try using a Reynolds® slow cooker liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.
