Well, slow cooking the patootie out of that tough meat worked! It cooked for about 8 hours on Low and is very tender now. We went out for Mexican food tonight, though, so I'll take some to work with me for lunch and DH will eat some while I'm gone. Whew, I'm glad I don't have to add it to the blackeye peas I'm slow cooking tomorrow as I want to use a smoked turkey leg in those. Just because I have to work on New Year's Day doesn't mean we can't have our traditional dinner of blackeye peas, fish (baked perch this year), and cornbread. Yum yum!!
Have a great beginning to a hopefully wonderful year!
