I found this recipe at The Sisters' Cafe (super food blog!!) and knew I HAD to try it since it was so easy. They used a pork roast, but I used a beef roast. The only other thing I changed was to add a couple of cloves of minced garlic. Oh, and I chopped the onion instead of leaving it in rings. I really liked the taste and love how simple it is to make. Elisa said it was too sweet, but not to me. The photo isn't great, but the taste is. I wish I had more right now.
By the way, ignore the unappetizing dark blob above the maduros (friend plantains). It's just black beans.
1/2 onion, thinly sliced
1 (2-4 lb.) roast
2 T. soy sauce
1 can whole berry cranberry sauce
Salt and pepper
Place the rings of onion in the crock pot. Sprinkle the roast with salt and pepper to taste. Place the roast on top of the onions. Next add the 2 Tbsp. of soy sauce, just pouring over the top of the roast. Dispense the cranberry sauce on top of the roast. Cook on low for 6 hours. About one hour before serving, shred with two forks and continue to cook for final hour.
