3-4 lb choice beef shoulder
2 cups apple cider
3 tsp cider vinegar
1/2 Tbsp minced garlic
1/4 c roughly chopped onion
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
(salt, pepper, onion powder and cinnamon)
Sprinkle roast with salt, pepper, onion powder and cinnamon. Sear it off in a hot pan, if you have the time…not necessary, but it makes it like 1% better…
Add all other ingrediants and cook in the slow cooker on high for 8-10 hours or in the Dutch oven at 350 for approximately 3 hours.
Pull meat into large chunks/shreds and put it back in the cooking liquid for 10-15 minutes once it’s done so that it absorbs the juices.
Serve by itself or as a delicious sandwich, also makes a great frittata filling!
