      This recipe is legit! To stretch it out, add sliced cabbage for the last hour of cooking and stir it after a half hour. I always freeze the juices to pick out the fat and then add it back in and shred. I only do that because I don't like it slimy when I eat it for leftovers. Don't worry if you don't have Hawaiian sea salt because I honestly can't tell a difference.

      can not believe no one has tried this. The meat was so tender with such good flavor. and so easy and fast to through in the cooker. I let it sit about a hour on warm than it sliced very well. Thank you Da Mama, this will be one of my go to EASY recipes.
