    Since my DH HATES chicken, I have to find different recipes for other meats. This is one I can't wait to try for pork! This is from Everyday Food.

      This was good but I didn't think the sauce was anything special. I sent my BF to the sotre and I ended up with boneless shoulder chops..haha. So I just sliced the meat thin instead of shredding it. While it was cooking I added a lot more spice because I knew it wasn't going to be right for me. It was good and we'll eat the leftovers but I wouldn't make this again.
