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.

Step-By-Step

1PREP/PREPARE
2THE ROAST
3Gather your ingredients.
4Place a rack in the lower position, and preheat the oven to 275f (135c)
5Rub the roast down with the oil, and then sprinkle with salt & pepper, to taste.
6Place a pot over medium-high heat, and sear the roast on all sides, about 2 minutes, per side.
7Remove the roast, and reserve.
8THE BRAISING LIQUID
9Gather your ingredients.
10Add the ingredients to the pot, and reduce heat to medium.
11Chef's Note: Use a wooden spoon to scrape the fonds off the bottom of the pot, and incorporate them into the braising liquid.
12Bring up to a simmer, while stirring to incorporate all the ingredients.
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.
14Return the roast to the pot.
15Tightly cover and place in the oven until fork tender, about 4 hours.
16Chef’s Note: If you are doing this in a slow cooker, add the seared roast, and other ingredients to the bowl of your slow cooker, and then set on low for 8 or 9 hours.
17PLATE/PRESENT
18Remove from the pot (or slow cooker), thickly slice, then plate with your favorite veggie and/or starch, and drizzle on some of that yummy sauce. Enjoy.
19Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
