My cooking club theme this month was Crockpots. I decided to try this recipe which would also give me a reason to buy Pom. Unfortunately, I did not use grass fed beef as the recipe suggests, I used a top round roast. I believe that grass fed beef is better for many reasons, but have not started to purchase it regularly yet – but that’s a whole ‘nother story.
In the end, this was pretty much a typical pot roast. Although I liked the pomegranate juice and fresh cranberries, the flavors were very subtle. Next time I may try simmering the gravy on the stovetop after the meat has finished cooking. Our meal was rounded out with an excellent ratatouille, and oh yes, chocolate cake in the crockpot!
