"Cut roast in half? Which direction? vertical or horizontal? Makes a difference.

Very irritating lack of specific information."

Next time I'll cut the pepper amount down."

"A bit expensive but very delicious. Used the leftovers to make melts on sourdough, equally delicious."

"These were so delicious. The meat was moist with just enough spice. The au jus was flavorful but not salty light many recipes I've tried. I'll definitely be making this again!"
