"Family loved the sweeter flavor! I added minced garlic, chopped onions, black pepper and Emeril's essence to the marinade. Will add ginger & sea salt next time. I layered the crock pot with tomatoes, red potatoes, bell pepper, celery, carrots and mushrooms. Add roast and marinade, cooked on high for 6 hrs. Added cornstarch and gravy browner last 30-45 minutes of cooking. Yummy!"

"We absolutely LOVED this! Didn't have time to let it marinate as long as recommended (only a couple of hours) put it in a stone, placed on the grill and cooked for a couple hours. Fabulous!"
