Made this precisely as is, even though I had my doubts about the 22 hours like most people say. I can't stand it when people write a review for something they haven't even tried...anyway...
This was OK as is, a bit too dry, of course because of the cooking time but nothing the resulting gravy mix could not fix (made with 2tsp cornstarch in water - was great).
Here is what I will do different next time, now that I have tried the baseline recipe:
1. Cook for 10 hours max
2. Add in a bit of red wine in addition to the water and the soy sauce (easy, since you just need to leave the last 1/2 inch of the roast uncovered)
3. If I have time, will sear the sides before putting it in the crock pot
4. Will pepper all sides before putting in the roast (wasn't enough to just put it on the top)
This had a great taste, fell apart (no cutting this baby) and I guess these changes will make it a 5.
