Thomasina's Swedish Roast (Hcg P3/4)

READY IN: 4hrs 5mins
Recipe by dripdripsplat

This is really for me to keep track of the recipe, but if you're looking for a flavorful roast, give this one a try. It's a slow cooker recipe, so you can set it up in the AM, and it'll be ready by dinner. You can also substitute red wine for the apple cider vinegar (although that's not for P3). ** UPDATE ** I've adjusted the cook time. Ideally what you're looking for is for the meat to be really tender. Each crockpot cooks a little differently, so if you're cooking the roast on low you may want to check on it at the 6 hour marker the first time you make this recipe.

Followed this exactly except used some whole cloves instead of ground cloves (what I had on hand). The flavor was really unique and wonderful -- a northern European sweet-and-sour. But the roast itself was very dry, despite still having plenty of liquid. I think after 7 1/2 hours on low, the nearly four-pound roast was just plain overdone. I recommend a much shorter slow-cooking time. When I try this again (I think I will) I'll check it after 4 hours.
