Yes,slow baking is awesome! It's amazing the difference in texture after this process.. it's a battle to cut the meat at the start-it's so tough..then afterwards it literally falls apart with a spoon!!..&yes,for sure-root vegetables added for a complete meal is great too!! cheers-enjoy! ;)

I can second the use of the apple cider vinegar, this can also be done in a crockpot. Brown first to seal flavors, then low and slow, I say add your favorite root vegetables as well. Thank for the Information!
