Honestly, I found this to be flat tasting even with the ask for seasonings. I did add 2 very small Yukon Gold potato's to it but that would have no bearing on flavor out come. After a taste test that prompted me to double the peppercorns, marjoram and thyme and give it 2 more hrs of light simmer,I ended up adding almost 1/4 cup of beef soup base to get the flavor richness. I did a very slow cooking over 5 hrs and the beef came out beautiful.
