This was good and easy to make. My roast was a bit smaller (around 2.5 pounds) but I left all the ingredients the same other then I did cut back the dry mustard to 1 teaspoon as one other reviewer did as I am not a huge mustard fan and 2 teaspoons seemed a bit much for me. Mine cooked on low in six hours. Made for some tasty beef.

WOW!! A fantastic lunch, and more sandwiches to be made with this. The seasonings made this absolutely FANTASTIC. I did cut the dry mustard to 1 teaspoon. Other than that its many o' lunches for the kids and myself. Thanks for the recipe Sharon. Made for PRMR tag.

This was so tender and tasty! I added dried onions (not a big onion fan) and added 2 Tablespoons of Merlot. It was delicious! I'll make more next time for even more leftovers! Made for the Aus/NZ Swap #26.
