"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!"

"This was SO MUCH BETTER than crock pot beef roast with onion soup mix... which was the only way I knew how to prepare a roast before the recipe. It really was delicious."

"I made this last night however I only marinaded for 1 hour & then cooked the meat on the grill (low & slow).

Turned out great. Really good flavor with the marinade."
