"Dad gave me this recipe when I was still in University years ago. It's so easy, I still remember it! Perfect for summer dinner parties - not a 'beautiful' presentation but, the taste and smell MORE than make up for that. Easily halved or doubled. Try it with a grainy or spicy mustard. Be sure to save the juices and 'gravy' to spread on sandwiches the next day." — PERSEPHONE

Oh My God! So let me state up front that I am a single father with 4 kiddos (YES, we do exist!), and a $12.00 an hour slug ( No child support, thank you Texas.). At any rate, the day before shopping day (read-payday) I was going through the fridge trying to come up with dinner. I found a roast, and a few other sundries, so I get on the pooter and I find this.
My changes were, not enough mustard so I added enough teriyaki marinade and cheap-o-depot bbq sauce about a half a cup combined between the two) to come up with the required liquids,add a few potatoes and onions to it before I wrapped up the foil and headed out to a mesquite tree fired grill.Hey, I live in Texas. You can't swing a dead cat without hitting a dead mesquite tree.
So anyway, I wish I could tell you about the leftover sandwiches, but there was nothing left over. the kids ate it ALL!. I will definitely make this again.
... and again and again!
The roast was okay. It was just too much mustard. And you're right - it's not much on presentation! My family didn't say anything about it - not a good sign in our house.
I added 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and one tablespoon of water to the mixture. I used 3 different mustards instead on just one. I only used 3/4cup of mustard and I also seared my roast on a hot BBQ prior to coating and wrapping. We thought it was really good, the sauce turned out the perfect consistency. I will make this again. I have frozen the leftovers with the sauce and they were excellent later on too.
I liked the basic idea but I added to it and it turned out absolutely delicious. I added a tablespoon of horseradish, sugar and water and I used grainy mustard. I also chopped up a whole head of garlic and added it to the marinade. You could smell it cooking down the block! Time was less than 2 hours though.
Easy to make and tastes great. It was the first time I attempted a roast on the BBQ and it won't be the last time I make it this way again. And as staded the left overs are great for sandwiches I personally use Dijon mustard.
I prepared this as written and am so upset with the results. Wasted a $12 roast. It's meat cooked in mustard and that's exactly what it tasted like. Hubby ate it slathered in ketchup but the kids wouldn't touch it. Had to make them something else.
This recipe rocks. I used 1 cup of honey dijon mustard and 1/3 cup of bbq sauce. It is delicious!
This didnt look all that great but it tasted surprizingly GOOD.my son is a chef and he sad it was delicious.I didnt add the whole package of onion soup mix.cutting back salt.Other wise it was perfect and I had a 10lb roast.
