I used pork loins instead and put the whole thing in the crock pot and cooked it overnight on high. The meat was so tender it almost fell apart. I then lowered the temperature to low, pull the rest of the pork apart with a fork and let it simmer until dinner.

I used appox. 1/4 cup of horseradish & only 1 tablespoon of the hot sauce. Ended up with a great taste. Just a little zing!!
