Very tender and delicious sandwich meat. I hopped my celery and onions very very fine (included those celery leaves, too). I skipped the water and added extra tomato sauce. Added lots of fresh minced garlic, too. I was gone for much of the day and my house smelled fantastic when I returned. The meat shredded practically effortlessly with forks. I'll make this again; thanx for sharing.
