This recipe is best in a slow cooker but can be done on the stove.
Meat or chicken for cooking (even the toughest cuts come out as soft as butter)
125 ml pure apple juice or orange juice per kg of meat or chicken
1 sticks of cinnamon per kg of meat or chicken
Your favourite meat or chicken seasoning/rub. I use equal amounts of garlic powder, onion powder and paprika (great as a braai spice also).
Spice the meat or chicken. If you want you can brown the meat or chicken, this does add to the flavour slightly, but I am often in too much of a hurry before work, so I just stick it in.
Place everything in your slow cooker and set to auto and leave for about 6 to 8 hours.
If you prefer to use one setting or have an older slow cooker, you can cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or on high for 4 to 6 hours.
It is easier to slice cooked meat evenly when it is cool. I do this especially when I want to use the meat or chicken as a cold lunch.
