Can you help me salvage my pot roast?

ChervilGeorge | Apr 4, 2012 06:38 PM

The cheap supermarket brand (McCormick) dried thyme I bought today has completely ruined the flavor. I hadn't realized I was out and the market had no fresh. The dried leaves I usually use are from The Spice House and I've never had the experience of thyme making a pot roast (or anything) bitter. I put in about 1/2 tsp.

Do you have any ideas of what I could add to counteract the bitterness? It's been braising for a little over 3 hours now.

The rest of the ingredients are:
smidge of tomato paste
beef stock
bay leaf
