A traditional German roast named for the "Fuhrmann" or Carter, since it is made with spices he brought from town to town. He also brought news and information of the world and thus was quite popular. This roast is made from a pot roast, arm roast or other inexpensive cut and braised in the oven until tender and flavorful.
