Another recipe I recieved in my WS magazine and so good. I learned to love Five-Spice while in China and was pleased to find this recipe; if you don't have the spice there are several recipes available on this site. For serving have butter lettuce leaves, steamed whtie rice, bean sprouts, and thinly sliced green onion and cilantro leaves for garnish. Serves a lot (14) so a great dish for company and easy to serve. When I made this made it easier by just browning the meat and the onions togheter and then dumping in the crock pot on low for 8 hours. Fall apart tender and easy to shred.
