This is what I came back to. I have to admit. I was scared. It was so dark and scary and I hadn't done ANY stirring or anything. I was shocked - the sauce had gone from scarily red to scarily over brown.
Take two forks and start shredding the pork apart. This is easy. As this was happening, the sauces started blending back to a less burnt looking color. It started to look like a BBQ sauce color.
