    1. Hi Carol! Great question! You should not need to add any liquid, as long as the roast you choose has some visible fat. My go-to’s are shoulder or butt roast. I will add that info into the recipe. Thanks for the question!

      1. Ok. Thank you Emily for clearing that up. This recipe sounds easy and fun to be able to make tacos with so I hope to try it.
