This was ok - I left out the salt and used a Low Sodium Soy sauce, becasue I'm not big on salt. The garlic gave it a good flavor throughout,though. Might be better cooked in the oven, than the crock pot - it did tend to be rather dry - but was certainly tender.

The flavor of the sauce was very nice, but the roast came out extremely dry. Maybe it needs to be browned in a skillet first.

I found this too salty so I would probably omit the salt or def use less.
