AWSOME recipe - five stars for taste and five stars for easy preparation! Made exactly as written without changes, and it turned out wonderfully. After 5 hours on high the meat was so tender it fell apart. Served with brown sugar roasted carrots, onions and apples. Will make this again! Thanks for posting this keeper.
Made for Harvets Moon Apple Festival of the Diabetes Forum.

Great taste and so tender! The extra sauce in the bottom of the pot made a great match poured lightly over mesclun, corn and a few other salad vegetables. And for others that want to try this great recipe don't forget that Australian cider is alcoholic cider not apple juice or extract.
