Oh my goodness!I actually made a delicious roast!Followed recipe to the letter!Thanks!
I add a light sprinkle of garlic powder and a light sprinkle of white pepper. For au jus...add one cup of water.
I used a 2.5lb roast,cooked for 2.5 hours. I added 1 cup of beer in place of one of the 3 cups water.Plus 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder.It was great, one of the most tender beef roast I have had in a long time.
