In a crock pot, place chunks of seasoned beef, onion, bell pepper, celery, garlic, mole, chocolate sauce and beef stock; cook on Low 8-10 hours or High for 4-6 hours.

Remove beef to a large bowl or plate and shred with fork. Reserve sauce. Gradually mix shredded beef with reserved sauce until you achieve desired consistency.
