I followed the recipe exactly, but I put probably 1.5 tablespoons of salt instead of a dash. Tomatoes and that much meat need more salt. The beef came out and shredded perfectly. However, it was rather bland... like a pot roast that needs a ton of salt. I was doing taco bar, so I amped up the flavor by adding some of the liquid from the pot (which in my opinion wasn’t that great), but it kept the meat from being dry. I sprinkled in a little more salt, garlic salt, season salt and some leftover taco seasoning that I had from a packet - about a tablespoon. This gave the meat very great taco flavor for my taco bar. Everyone loved it! I will make it again using the extra seasoning that I added at the end.
