  1. Add everything but the small can of tomatoes to crock pot.
  2. Cook on low for 8-10 hours or until meat is shredded.
  3. The last 2 hours add the can of tomatoes undrained.
  4. You will have to stir with a fork to break up the meat once in a while.
  5. I usually do it every hour or so after the meat is cooked.
  6. Serve on your favorite roll.
