Cranberry Roast

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.
Cranberry Roast

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.


  1. Oooh! I am going to try this next week!
    I love that site.. I also love Best Bites.. do you follow that one?? That have some great recipes too!

  2. I do like Best Bites and check them out pretty often. They actually linked to one of the recipes on my blog once (can't remember which one).

  3. Oh, no. I am thinking of Baking Bites. I'll have to check them out and see if I've seen it before. Thanks for the heads up. I can't get enough food blog links. :)

  4. It sounds really good. I really like cranberries but I am allergic so I can't eat them. :o(

  5. Sounds like a good way to use up the canned cranberries that no one will eat because the fresh ones I make are so much better! I think I will give it a try. I love their website too!
