This turned out great, but I added a few ingredients to the sauce for added flavor; 1/4 cup of white vinegar, 1 chipolte pepper and a couple of dashes of hot pepper sauce. The flavor was fantastic and I would make this again!

This was everything a slow cooker recipe is supposed to be: easy, not a lot of ingredients, and great outcome. Next time, I will probably brown the meat before adding to the slow cooker just to give it another layer of flavor. Great basic recipe that could easily be customized to be more spicy or more intense, depending on your flavor buds. This also would be a great dish to serve at a party - it appeals to many different palates. Thumbs up!

Slow clap. I used as a base, as i do most recpies I get. I love garlic, and spicy items. I modified it to fit my taste. I think without it it still would have been great. I love this and it showed me how to really cook the roast and have the true shred to the meat. Cant thank you enough. Exploding high 5.
