Notes

If meat seems dry at end of cooking, add a bit more (warm) broth. On the other hand, if you have more juice than you want, continue to stir the meet after shredding and a lot of the juice will be reabsorbed by the meat. Finally, if it is still too juicy, sprinkle in a teaspoon of flour or so, stir until desired consistency is reached.
