Well, here ya go…

You can produce this dish in one of two ways: 1). In the slow cooker on low, for about 8 or 9 hours, or 2). In the oven, for about 4 hours.

In either case, you will have a fork-tender roast packed with great flavor.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

13Chef's Tip: Since this braising liquid contains a lot of bourbon, when it comes to a simmer, you might want to avoid the fumes... unless you want to get drunk.
