Recipe Tip

- If you’re not sure about the size of your slow cooker, measure it before you start the recipe. Simply use a measuring cup to determine the amount of water your slow cooker will hold. Then divide the number of cups that your cooker holds by 4 to determine the quart volume.

- To make this recipe for 12 servings, double all the ingredients. Place ingredients in 5-quart slow cooker and cook as directed above.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

This is so easy and delicious. Followed directions for cooking rice but I added the drained pineapple juice (app. 1 C), 1/4 C soy sauce and cut green onions, then added water to make proper amount for cooking. Have also added sliced onion and carrots. A regular go-to dish.
This recipe is great. I have substituted chicken for the beef and added broccoli and it still turned out great. You can't go wrong with this recipe, I'm glad I found it again.
My mother makes this at least once a month and its definitely a family favorite. The only downside is having to smell the delicious smell for hours before its ready! She also adds some onions in for more flavoring. It's amazing!
The recipe was generally good, but I added a red pepper for coloring and an onion as my family likes onions. But will serve this again. Thanks for sharing.

Cranberry Swirl Sweet Rolls
November 24, 2015 by Mallory

I always have him make twice the amount needed because I love having leftovers. This year, I decided that rather than serving it alongside leftover turkey and mashed potatoes, I was going to try something new. We still have guests lingering the day after Thanksgiving, so what better way to ease the turkey “hangover” than with homemade sweet rolls for breakfast? More ...
