This turned out great - just the thing for a damp chilly Fall day. Will make this again for sure! After removing and slicing the roast, I removed a large part of the "ginger snap" sauce to a saucepan to thicken quicker. To serve, I placed the sliced roast at one end of a pretty platter, hot Spaetzles(German Egg Noodles) tossed with a little of the sauce at the other end of the platter and the onions down the middle and topped it all with the thickened sauce.
