    Wonderful blend of flavors and the aroma while cooking was fantastic. I cooked for 4 hours on high which was perfectly tender while leaving enough structure to pick up the meat with a fork. Rather than rice I served with mashed potatoes which also worked wonderfully to soak up the delicious sauce.
