What a wonderful recipe this is. Our roast beef was perfectly cooked and seasoned. We really enjoyed all the flavors in this tasty dish. It was so easy to throw together, 8 hours later, the house smelled incredible and we had the best comfort meal around. The meat and onions were so flavorful and tender. I will be making this one again. Thanks for sharing. Made for Pac Spring Safari 2013.

I'm making this as we speak i did everything like it said and I don't know why but it has no flavor. So I started adding BBQ sauce, hoisin sauce and adobo and it seems to have flavor now.

My roast was about three pounds but I left all the ingredients the same. My husband loved the onions in this and I liked it but I thought the vinegar was a bit strong. Next time I would cut it in half. I only cooked my roast for six hours and it was perfect for us.
