Thanks for posting it. Sounds really good.

This is the best recipe!! After shredding the meat, I put it in a braising pan , added the crock pot juice a cup at a time, added some salt and coriander and powdered onion and let the meat cook down the liquid. Let the meat brown as the liquid evaporates. This resulted in a nice “bark” finish to the meat and it intensified the flavor. Add some remaining juice from Crock pot to keep the meat moist.

Sounds really good. Will have to try this one for sure.

oh yesss, thank you! Bookmarked
