This was a huge failure for us tonight; it's overwhelmingly salty, so much so that we just couldn't eat the meat or the juices (sorry). I had a nearly 5lb roast so I doubled the spices. I should not have doubled the salt. I also made this in the crock pot, maybe that was the problem? I'm not leaving stars since I changed the recipe by doubling seasonings & using the crock pot.
