Very easy and Very good!! I used a beef rump roast, but next time I might try chicken. I think pork, beef or chicken would be good!

Oh, these are WONDERFUL! Gobbled up quickly at every place I've ever brought them and oh-so-easy, to boot! I used boneless pork, so I don't know how this tastes with beef, but I'm sure it's equally delicious. Also, I didn't add the salt and pepper; it seemed plenty flavorful to us. :)
