"This meat is so good for sandwiches. I like to add a little fiber to it with some carrots and cut out some sugar by using mesquite sauce."

So good and yet so easy! Left out the carrots because I didn't have any in the house. Makes great sandwiches. You could also use beef for this and it would be delicious!

Followed this recipe exactly. It was very dry. There may be too much beef broth in this recipe as it almost looked like a soup when done. I won't be making this again.
