  2. In a seperate pan cut your roast up in large chunks and sear really well adding each peice to the liquid.
  3. Bring the meat to a slow boil..allowing to boil 2-3 hours depending on the cut of meat. You want your meat to be tender and falling apart. When it is falling apart turn the fire off and allow meat to soak while it cools. During the cooking time stir from the bottom and add water or wine because the liquid will reduce alot.
  4. Using a fork or hands shred meat..adding broth mixture to moisten meat. Dont not throw away left over liquid..this yummy goodness can be used for other things...* like enchilida sauce!! You can always freeze it for future use!!
  5. Now your meat is ready to make what ever you desire...Note*** Best served with Margaritas!! Enjoy!!!
