I got the original recipe for this from the Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet Cookbook...after making it once, I made some changes to the ingredients & measurements; we like the 'adjusted' recipe better!.

You can serve this either as sandwiches topped with coleslaw, or just on a plate with sides of mashed potatoes and coleslaw. Either way, it's great!

Hubby gave it his stamp of approval!

NOTE: Cooked all night in the crockpot...as I was removing meat to cool & shred, there was a popping sound & sparks flew from around control button on pot...so had to finish in one of my stainless pots...sad, my Dad bought that crockpot for me in 1974 for Christmas...it served us well, but now it's gone, as is Dad...:( love & miss you Daddy
