I have absolutely no idea where this recipe came from. But I've been using it for a long, long time to make shredded beef for tacos or nachos. I've also used the spice and water mixture to make shredded chicken breasts. This recipe is very, very flexible and amounts can easily be doubled or tripled if needed.
