I really liked the flavor of this. I prepared this alittle different though. I did this up as a dump recipe for the crock pot. I followed directions up to no. 4. Froze in zip lock bag. Thawed over night in fridge. Dumped all contents into crock pot. Turned on low for approx 6-8 hours. This was very tender and flavorful. Deserves more than 5 stars. Great for OAMC menus. I adopted this from the freeze it tag.
