    Rub both sides roast with dry spices. Add olive oil to a skillet (I used my elec. skillet), sear roast on both sides.

    Reduce heat to a low simmer and add about 1 c of water, cover with lid.

    You will simmer for about 3 hrs, depending on heat. Turn every 20-30 min adding water as needed to keep liquid in skillet.

    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).
