Recipe by Pesto lover

This recipe is so easy to make and turns out really delicious. The meat is so tender you can cut it with your fork. The sauce is great. We serve it with rice.

This was falling apart tender and tasty. I think I would add somewhat less chili sauce next time as the meat was a bit sweeter than I would like.
