"I had plans to make this recipe exactly as written but I was only able to put the rub on the roast, brown the roast, and then I had to throw it in my crock pot on high for 2 1/2 - 3 hours. Still amazing! It was very moist and the flavor was outstanding. I'm not a big fan of caraway seeds, but it was really, really good. I do want to try the recipe as written, but based on my first try, delicious!!!!"
