  2. Rub both sides roast with dry spices. Add olive oil to a skillet (I used my elec. skillet), sear roast on both sides.
  3. Reduce heat to a low simmer and add about 1 c of water, cover with lid.
  4. You will simmer for about 3 hrs, depending on heat. Turn every 20-30 min adding water as needed to keep liquid in skillet.
  5. Once roast is tender, allow all water to simmer out. Keep a close eye so not to burn the roast. Simmer without water for about 5 min, then add 2 c of water and A-1 sauce. Add sliced mushrooms and onion. (Simmering without water for that short period of time will brown your roast and produce that dark color in your au jus).
  6. Simmer for about 10 min. Remove and serve.
