I have been looking for something Christmas Dinner worthy but without the labor intensy and this is perfect! We just tried it out tonight and its great. I hate it when people substitute but I did use a bag of whole cranberries from the freezer in place of the canned. I used only 1/2 c sugar because of the reviews that I had read it was both tart and sweet. I test drove it with rosemary roasted potatotes and 2 sides of green beens and asparagus and it was really a grand slam. Thanks so much for posting this! I cant wait for a carefree Christmas dinner!

This recipe was delicious. The meat was so tender. I'd probably eliminate the sugar next time though b/c it was a little too sweet for me. Thanks!
