    I am very familiar with Mexican shredded beef. This is a very different recipe from what I'm used to but the flavor combo should be great. The coffee is an interesting addition. Going to have to make this but will use a crock pot. Too bloody hot and sticky in Samoa to have the oven going for four hours. Thanks for the post. RJ

    This sounds like the real deal! I'm not really into shortcut or "fast & easy" recipes & this one looks like the good, old-fashioned slow cooked kind. Will be trying this one day this coming week. Thanks!
