      I used this for tacos and it was hands down the best taco meat ever! Instead of adding more salt to the meat I added some adobo seasoning and it really gave it good flavor. I used london broil b/c that's what I had. Today I am on my way to the store to get flank steaks so we can have it again this weekend. I'd love to try it in a crock pot for a weeknight meal sometime. Thanks!!!
