    Recipe Junkie's Note:

    From the international cookbook. I prefer to use the stovetop the way this is written, but this recipe says that it can be made in a pressure cooker, reducing the cooking time by one-third.

      I used 1/2 the meat and potatoes but all of the seasonings/liquids. It was pretty easy to put together and the flavor was outstanding! After the meat was done cooking, I took it out and shredded it with a fork, then put it back in the liquid and let it reduce down at a boil for about 15 min. Absolutely delicious and I will definitely make it again.
