I only made this because I accidentally bought an eye of round roast instead of a chuck roast! I was really not excited that I had bought such a lean roast, because it was sure to be tough. However, it actually turned out pretty good sliced thinly. I poked deep holes in the meat before marinating overnight. Also, I didn't have apricot preserves or pickling spice, so I used orange marmalade & put together as many of the pickling spice ingredients I could find: cinnamon, peppercorns, allspice, coriander, bay leaves, ginger, mustard seeds. . .guessed on amounts until it smelled pretty good. Used a meat thermometer & cooked to about 175 degrees. I also used cornstarch to thicken the sauce because I'm doing weight watchers right now. Still was good, esp. with the marmalade. I'm sure I'll make this again, since I bought 3 total roasts! Thanks for the recipe.
