I laid out ground turkey for lasagna.

Great idea Tracy! Super duper simple. I usually shred beef…depends on how “beefy” you want it. Bring beef broth to boil, cook noodles (I usually use an entire bag of Inn-Maid medium which takes 10 minutes) then in the last few minutes I throw in the beef. It’s already cooked, so you just need to warm it up. I have used tough, leathery beef in here! Still tastes good! ;) Makes really good leftovers too.

That sounds good and easy Susan. But, I already threw it out. It was so tough that Ray threw it right back in the pan. It took us 5 minutes to chew one piece. And do you know what, I couldn't even shred it, it was so tough. It was horrible!

How long did you cook it, Missy? If I cook a roast in the oven, I cook it at around 300 all day long and it is usually fall apart tender.

300 for an hour and then 250 for almost 2 hrs. Dry as a bone. It must have been the cut of roast. I think it was a butt.

A butt.... lol....

I still think that if you don't cook a roast at a low temp for at least 8 hours, it is usually tough, maybe not dry but definitely tough. At least mine are...

I always do mine in the crockpot. 8-10 hours on low.
