"We had this last Sunday for dinner and it turned out delicious. I roasted it at 400 degrees for 1/2 hour and then turned it down to 325 degrees F. It was moist and so flavorful. I will definitely keep this recipe to make again."

"This was a great recipe. We ate it all up with some mashed potatoes. McCormick makes a barbecue seasoning that I used. It has brown sugar, tomato, garlic, onion, peppers and a slight smoke flavor."

"I followed this recipe but cut back on the cooking time. I had the oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes and then finished roasting at 350 degrees. Instead of roasting it for 20 minutes, I started checking the internal temperature every 10 minutes until it had reach 140 degrees because I was looking for a medium-rare roast. It turned out great!"

"Savory, glad you tried the slow cooker method. This is the only way I fix a roast anymore because they come out so much more tender than roasting in the oven."

"I made it in the slow cooker just like GrannyGrunt advised. It was tender and delicious. Granny's always know how to cook roasts best!"

"I made some adjustments to this recipe and it turned out pretty good. I browned the roast & placed it in a slow cooker. Poured the excess oil out of the pan, added the broth and heated just enough to loosen the browned bits in the pan. Poured that over the roast, placed cover on slow cooker, and cooked for 6 hours on low. Strained the juices and served with the roast. I used a regular seasoning salt instead of the barbecue seasoning powder."

"I agree with virgilthecook. After the 1st half hour some of mine was already med well! If you try this either don't brown it or subtract the browning time."

"This is one of the worst recipes I have ever seen. First, if you follow the cooking times, you will get a shoe leather well, well, well, well done roast. You should at least cut cooking time in half, if not more. Second, who has ever heard of barbeque seasoning powder? What is it? What is in it?"
