Cranberry Roast


Cranberry Roast

Let's hear it for our slow cookers!

This one is a favorite all the way around our family. Typically I can put the whole thing in the crock pot the night before with the roast still frozen. In the morning it's defrosted and I turn the machine on low to cook for the whole day (or, 10-12 hours).

1 pkg onion soup mix (we actually buy this in bulk through Azure)
1 roast, 3-5 pounds
1 can jellied cranberry sauce
2 T flour, not to be added until roast is cooked

Sprinkle onion soup mix on the bottom of the crock pot and place roast on top. Spread the cranberry sauce all over the roast. Cook on low for 10-12 hours, or on high for 4-6.

After roast is done, remove it from the slow cooker and slice or shred. Stir flour into juices in crock pot and turn the temperature to high. Cook and stir for 5-10 minutes, until you have a nice gravy. Spoon gravy over roast and enjoy!
