Can I substitute beef bottom round?

I'm thinking of trying this with beef bottom round - it's much leaner than pork shoulder I believe so any thoughts about modifications?

I wouldn't do it. Bottom round does not benefit from long cooking, even if it's moist. My thought is that you would end up with a flavorful but tough dish. I think something with more fat would benefit this dish and a cut that would be better suited to the longer cooking, like a pot roast, chuck roast, etc. Good Luck! Karen
