Don't know what I did wrong, but my roast was tough. Flavor was great, but so disappointed in the overall product. Love Chef John's recipes, but this one failed for me. :(

Can anyone tell me this: I added NO liquid, as per instructions, and the meat came out SWIMMING in liquid anyway! So basically, it boiled - right? What happened?? I did everything according to the recipe! It WAS still very good, but I feel as though it wasn't 'right.'

This Chef always cracks me up and his food is just yummy. So easy and mellow and his little mistakes are just great. Wonderful to discover him on here.

That looks so good. I can't wait to make it. Now that I got a new oven after hurricane Sandy wiped out my stove and other stuff I can finally make stuff like that.
