3-6 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts or beef roast or pork shoulder/roast
1/2- 2 tsp. salt
1/2 -2 tsp. black pepper

(optional) 1/4-1/2 cup water

Place meat in slow cooker, and sprinkle with seasonings (and liquid, if using). Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or until the meat shreds easily with a fork. (*If making a smaller batch, keep an eye on your slow cooker as the chicken will likely need less cooking time.)

Remove the meat with tongs, and shred using a stand mixer with the paddle. Use immediately, or just put it in equal portions in resealable plastic bags and put them in the freezer once cooled.
