This is also one of my favorite dishes from my childhood. My mother added sliced baby carrots and onions and served over "real" mashed potatoes, not out of the box! I have found that tenderizing the meat first makes it fall apart after cooking. I have used a meat mallet or a tenderizer with metal blades. These work well.
