Good and easy, Member MrSoul

Followed recipe closely. Roast was just over 2 lb. so reduced other amounts accordingly. Used a stout. Added one clove garlic, minced. Cooked in cast iron Dutch oven at 325 for about 2 1/2 hr. Tender and moist and great flavor. Gravy was interesting. If I make again, may cut back on carrots.
