READY IN: 3hrs 15mins
Recipe by loof751

An easy stove-top pot roast recipe. You could probably do it in a crock pot too but I've never tried it that way...

I made this on the stove top and it was done in 2.5 hours. I thought the crush 1/2 Star Anise that I used added a very nice flavor. As it cooked I just kept turning the roast about every 30 minutes. I did think it was too salty, I will try using reduced sodium soy sauce and no salt at all in the future. Made for team Soup-A-Stars during ZWT9 2013
