The rest, I separate the meat into hunks for the freezer which I use up in various dishes such as shredded pork BBQ, cut into small dice for fried rice (marinated in pineapple, ginger and soy), stew, etc.

If you don't care to use beer, water works fine. I don't add salt, but often use thyme. It makes a great gravy when braised this way.

I don't braise in apple juice any more because it ruins the drippings for gravy IMO.
You can also use beef or chicken stock or broth. You can treat it as you woud a beef roast. ZH gave you the simplest way to cook it. You can't fail. And it is delicious. Any left over gravy is great for open faced sandwiches also.

I'm watching Spartacus, the original one.
I might head to the grocery store in a couple hours and beat the Sunday crowd.

I'm planting the purchases from yesterday's greenhouse run, along with taking the overwintered hibiscus, spikes, and rosemary outside. It's a beautiful day, finally!

Came close to rolling the car but avoided that and wound up jumping a big ditch and taking someone's mailbox off with our passenger side rear view mirror. Unfortunately, in doing so both passenger doors are roached, along with the mirror.

It's going to be a costly repair because our car is a big Lincoln and the paint is a stinker to match. Glenn says, if the insurance company gets involved, they will likely total our car. NOOOOOOOO!!! I love Speedy, named so because we acquired it so quickly. I'm hoping for the best. At least neither one of us was hurt.

We made it to the awards show and had a lovely time.
Sorry to hear about the accident. Like you said...Thankfully nobody was hurt.Cars & parts can be replaced, not our loved ones. Take care!

The hummingbirds are back! DH and I both got the word straight from the birds, "Where is our food?" Heard the whirring. Mixed and hung the food up.

Apparently they always return to where they were hatched and grew up.

I just ordered another remote probe thermometer off Amazon. My other one had the probes replaced a couple times and I still didn't fully trust anymore. It was time for a new one. And the range is supposed to be better now, too.
