I was just going to post this recipe to celebrate my new Crockpot, but Kristin had already done such a bag-up job I figured I would save myself the time and share her blog.
I have made this recipe many many many times and it is amazing. I bring it to work when we have department potlucks and it is always a big hit. My two sons, 7 and 10 both devour it as well. My husband loves it but says it stinks up the house when I make it.
I usually brown the meat in a pan before chucking it into the Crockpot because the Crockpot doesn’t do it. I like the extra layer of flavor that caramelizing the outside of the meat provides to the overall flavor.
The last time I made it I used something other than Chuck roast and it became too finely shredded so it is up to you, but I didn’t think it was as good.
