I use a very similar recipe for this dish, but mine omits the veggies and has 2c water instead of 1c. The meat comes out amazingly tasty & tender every time. I use it for beef, chicken, and pork, and my husband loves it! The other day I cooked pork chops in the sauce for a couple hours, then served those for dinner; I tossed several chicken breasts into the remaining sauce and got to freeze a meal or two of pulled chicken sandwiches. Thanks for posting!
