This is perfect for when you have a lot of cooking to do. This is a major dish, but cooks overnight, which frees up the oven, for dishes that have to baked and served immediately. I start it about 10 pm, let it bake until 11 pm and I know that it is good and hot. I then turn the oven down to 250-275 and let it bake until 6 or 7 am in the morning. The brown sugar may smell as it if is burning, but it is such a large piece of beef it is not. I have made this for my family for years and they have never been disappointed. I hope you enjoy this.
