    1Steve's Note:

    This is a nice change of pace varriation on a beef roast. It has that Old World flavor and it's crockpot easy too. Makes about 6 to 8 good sized servings.

      WOW, great pot roast!! I happened to have some fresh ginger in, so I used it instead of powder, Used about a 3 lb blade roast, without bone. wonderful combination of flavours, we especially enjoyed the apples/onions, oh, nummy and of course the apple juice a great flavour, making the gravey outstanding. We saturated out garlic mashed potatoes with it!! BTW, it only took about 7 hours in my crockpot. Looking forward to the left overs for tomorrow's dinner. Thanks for sharing!!

      I didn't get to try this, but my husband said it was great. Very easy to do! I used sweet potato, regular potato, and carrot. He did say he would like an onion in it next time.

      Fabulous pot roast. I used a rump roast and it was very tender and sliced easily. This is quite different from my usual pot roast and I mean that in a good way. Filled the house with a wonderful smell and the meat and gravy were heaven. Beef goes well together with apples. Thanks 1Steve.
