Such great flavor for so little work!! Made extra marinade and put everything right in the crockpot. Added onions bell pepper and garlic. Cooked on low til fork tender. Thickened the juice with cornstarch at the end. Will be making this again!

I created an account just so I could rate this! So simple and SO good. I was using an instant pot so I went to another site for cooking tips. I think it was 70-80 minutes on high pressure and another 8 with the veggies thrown in. It was perfect and SO good. Will never use another recipe.

i used a 4 1/2 pound roast and cooked for 2 1/2 hours and it was over 190 degrees. A little over cooked, but had great flavor!

This marinade adds a lot flavor to the beef. However, I agree that 3 hours is far too long. I tend not to read the reviews so my thoughts aren't biased but I wish I had this time since my roast was dry. 1.5 hours would probably have been plenty. I'll definitely try this again.

This came out very good, but I agree with other reviewers that it doesn't need this long to cook. Keep an eye on the internal temp. Mine was a little over-done after 1.5 hours, but it still came out great!

Don't leave it in the oven this long, you'll kill it. This was a fairly large chunk of beef that I was cooking, and it's over-done. 3 hours is waaaaay too long for this sort of thing. You're not cooking the entire cow...

I followed the ingredient list and method exactly, but the sauce was very, very dark and the meat was dry. My Dutch oven is cast iron, so I wonder if there was a reaction between the liquids and the cast iron?

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!
