We had a really good roast tonight for dinner.
It had a fall flavor.
Paul gave it the "thumbs-up" sign.
It's a good change up from the usual Sunday roast, and so easy. You just dump everything in your crockpot and when you get home from church, dig in!
Spiced Cran-Apple Roast
1 roast, 2-3 lbs
1/2 cup apple butter (it's but the jam or the peanut butter, depending on which store)
1/4 cup apple juice
2 T. cider vinegar
1 t. ground pepper
1/2 t. salt
1 medium Granny Smith apple, peeled and cubed
1 celery rib, chopped
1 small red onion, chopped
1/3 cup dried cranberries
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 T. cornstarch
3 T. cold water
Coat crockpot with cooking spray. Place roast in crock pot.
In a large bowl, combine the apple butter, juice, vinegar, pepper and salt. Stir in the apple, celery, onion, cranberries, and garlic. Pour over roast. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until meat is tender.
Remove meat to a serving platter; keep warm. Transfer juices to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth. Gradually stir into pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Served with meat.
