This slow roast is well worth the time and effort. It practically melts in your mouth. It is also such an impressive dish to serve. I love adding a sprig or two of fresh thyme and serve it straight from the cast iron pot for maximum flavor absorption and an impressive wow factor. Seriously, the smells coming from this dish are unforgettable and will leave you salivating. I suggest pairing this beef with a simple sticky white rice as you won't need any more flavor and the gravy from the beef will become a delicious sauce to add to the rice.

    This was an absolute disaster and a waste of around $30. After 3 hours at 300f, I had a completely burned mess. There probably needed to be much more liquid but I'll never try it again to find out.
