"I know the ingredients call for a beef chuck roast, but I think it's actually supposed to be a PORK roast, like the write up states ("Simple but absolutely delicious cranberry PORK roast!")... I can't..." See more imagine a cranberry sauce with beef, but who knows... I chose pork, since fruit sauces are usually a good complement, and it turned out fantastic! My husband wolfed it down and normally he's a very slow eater... Don't worry about it not having much liquid to begin with-- I stared into my crockpot for quite awhile debating if I needed to add water (my hubby even peered over my shoulder and commented on how dry it looked compared to my other crock pot recipes) but I went on faith and followed the recipe to a T and it turned out great (the cranberry sauce quickly "melts" and turns into a watery stew for the meat to cook in). Yes, this is a sweet recipe, but it's sweet like BBQ sauce is sweet (it tastes appropriate and not remotely like cranberry sauce-- trust me, I'm not a big fan of the stuff)... I'm also not a big fan of pork, but I am a HUGE fan of crock pots and know that otherwise dry/tough meat ALWAYS turns out fabulous in it.... Give this recipe a try-- your tastebuds will thank you for it!"
"I've been making this for years, my family loves it. The last four hours of cooking I add baby carrots and cut up potatoes and sprinkle a second bag of onion soup mix on top of them. This recipe is f..." See moreabulous!"
What a Dish!
"I thought this might turn out wierd, but had to try it because it seemed so easy. It was great! It doesn't taste like cranberries (I used a store-brand of cranberry sauce), but formed lots of nice, ..." See morebrown-type gravy to serve over my garlic-roasted mashed potatoes. I used one fresh 3-lb chuck roast and one .5 lb rump roast (from the freezer) and prefered the rump roast because it wasn't so fatty. So next time, I'd just do a rump roast instead. I added some baby carrots to the crockpot and those were great too. Luckily I bought two cans of cranberry sauce so I can make this again!"
