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.'
