Hi, the recipe looks great and I would like to cook this for my husband (not me though as I don't eat meat) but this says cooks in 10 hrs, 20mins however the recipe and prep total only 5hrs 20mins . . . where's the extra 5hours?! Sorry if this is obvious, I'm new to this site and have only just bought a slow cooker (used it once so far!). Many thanks. - 20 Oct 2016
