"There were no leftovers in our family wish this dish! Everyone loved these! The only thing I altered was the broth. I didn't think the recipe called so enough liquid so I added a cup of beef stock."

"This is very similar to how I make my roast w/ carrots and potatoes. I also add a whole onion and use 2 or 3 bay leaves instead of the basil and oregano. Tastes great!"

"Was very good, would not shred all the meat at once though would save what wasn't used 1st night and use in a stew for another night."
