Can this recipe be made in the slow cooker? Yes it can! I have made it in a 7 quart Crock Pot. Cook 6-8 hours on low. All slow cookers cook differently so I always recommend keeping a close eye the first time you make a recipe.
Can you make this recipe without a specific ingredient? Sure, but I can't speak for how it is going to taste since I make it as the recipe below states.
