A lot of work for a slow cooker recipe. I don't think it should be catagorized as slow cooker

This recipe was a huge hit! Very flavorful and makes a large batch. I also seasoned it with about 1/2 packet of taco seasoning and it was awesome.

I added 3 Tablespoons of Cumin when cooking down the tomato mixture, it was great!

We used a neck roast instead but this was excellent! Would be great on a bun also.
