    southern chef in louisiana's Note:

    Spices and mixed dried fruit make a great flavor for this roast--it's a family favorite. (Don't confuse the dried fruit bits you buy for baking--look for packages of regular size dried apples, peaches, pears and plums).

      I have made this twice now and my daughter who is 11 is a very picky eater, she loved it. The truth is she actually asked me about the dish yesterday. She want's me to make it again. She calls it "the fruity meat dish." I prepared it with mash potatoes, like the other person and it's delicious!!!

      I prepared this with dried apples, figs, prunes, dates, and apricots. I also cooked it in a dutch oven on top of the stove. It took about 21/2 hours for a 4 pound roast. It was delicious. Very flaverful, the children really loved it and the gravy was wonderful over mashed potatoes.Thank you for this unique way of preparing the same old thing.
