This tender, juicy recipe can only be appreciated when you dig your fork into the meat. A picture would not do it justice. This may be too fussy to be made quickly, but it is definitely worth the effort. Feeds a small army. Be sure to serve with bread to sop up the gravy. You won't want to miss a drop of it. Will be sure to keep this as a hidden treasure recipe going back to AJ's time. Today's Daddy should be proud of this taste sensation.
