Last Sunday I had guests coming for an early dinner. I had to be gone for a few hours, so I popped this in the oven before I left. It was SO tender and juicy!! I'll make it like this all the time now. I think it would work well in a crockpot too, if you cut the roast in large pieces before browning.
