    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Prep time includes browning the roast, this is started on top of the stove then finished cooking in the oven --- the exact amounts really do not matter for this recipe I just eyeball all ingredients, start with 1/3 cup brown sugar and add in more if needed while cooking, when I make this I find that for my taste I need more than 1/3 cup --- the cayenne was left as optional if you like some heat then add it in and adjust to taste or you may used crushed chili flakes, there is tons of sauce to this so there is no need to double the amounts --- cooking time is only estimated it will depend on the size of your roast, this will also work well using a pork roast.

      This is just delicious. The meat was tender and flavorful, and the sauce was sweet and tangy and wonderful. But as good as this is with beef, I think it would be even better with pork! We served it with egg noodles, but it would be good with mashed potatoes, too. Thanks, Kittencal! Made for KK's Chef's Pick tag.

      This roast is wonderful! I was looking for something different to do with my roast. This was it! My family loved it! I was'nt going to be home all day so I seasoned and browned the roast. Put it in my slow cooker added the sauce and cooked it on low for 7 hours.I'll be making this again soon. Thanks Kittencal!
