Challenge #3 Super Simple Cranberry Roast

I haven’t always had great success with beef roasts – even in the crock pot. I think they can get dry & tough very easily. My supermarket often does buy one, get one free deals on roasts though so I usually have one or two on hand. I found this recipe & had to try it.

It did not disappoint. By the end of the day the sauce had reduced to this amazing concoction so full of flavour – yummy! I served the sauce separately & it was lovely for dipping the meat into. And the roast itself was juicy & tender. My husband really liked it too. I love that it’s a little bit sweet, but not too sweet. Definitely a winner – so simple & easy – it will be on my regular rotation of roast recipes from now on! It’s great that it can be used for pork or beef as well.

Challenge #3 Tangy Slower Cooker Pork Roast

I love roasts done in the crock pot! I fix a roast every couple of weeks or so. My family loves it, it lasts long enough for left overs for a couple of other meals, it tastes so good! I like beef & pork. I usually just use Johnny’s Season salt to flavour & keep it simple, but I thought I’d mix it up & try something different.

I loved this recipe. It was simple & tasty. I would have liked the flavour to permeate the meat a bit more, I think this could be achieved by basting more often. I’ll be using this recipe again.
