    Could this be done on the stove top instead of using a slow cooker? If so how long would you suggest cooking it on the stove?

      Hey RB, yes absolutely you could give this a try on the stove rather than using a slow cooker. The meat (or alternative) may not end up being as tender and the sauce may not be as rich but it would speed things up. Timing would depend on the stove temperature, but perhaps low heat at an hour would do the trick. Also probably would be best to cover up the pan / pot to make sure the sauce doesn’t splatter all over the place.
