I found this recipe on the Fine Cooking website. The original directions were written for cooking the roast in a Dutch oven on a barbecue grill. I am not at all good with the grill, so I cooked mine in the oven. Preparation time does not include chilling time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the thyme, rosemary, paprika, dry mustard, and 2 teaspoons each salt and pepper. Sprinkle the spice blend all over the roast. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours but preferably overnight.
  3. Heat 2 Tablespoons oil over medium-high heat in a Dutch oven with a tight-fitting oven-proof lid. Brown roast well on all sides. In a medium bowl, whisk together broth, bourbon, Dijon mustard and molasses. Pour over roast. Add onions and garlic and cover.
  4. Place covered Dutch oven in the preheated oven and cook 2 1/2 to 3 hours or until roast is fork-tender.
  5. Take Dutch oven out of oven and increase heat to 425. Remove roast from Dutch oven and place on a rack in a roasting pan. In food processor or blender, combine about 1/4 cup of the onion mixture in the Dutch oven with 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard and 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary; process until smooth. Brush top and sides of roast with about 2/3 of mustard mixture. Place roast back in oven until glaze begins to brown. Flip roast over, top with remaining mustard mixture, and return to oven to brown again.
