    Ten stars, if I could! This is a different and delicious pot roast! Absolutely loved the ginger flavors in this ( I went a little heavy on the garlic and ginger because we love those two ingredients). I did try at four different grocery chains to find the canned plums - to no avail. But by then I had already purchased the plum wine, so couldn't turn back... I used a package of frozen dark cherries instead, since they have a similar taste profile. And it was magnificent! Can't wait to try this with canned plums if I ever find them, though wouldn't hesitate to use the cherries again. Another change I made was to use my instant pot for browning and cooking. 20 minutes per pound under pressure - and the roast was perfectly cooked and fall-apart tender! Thanks for posting, this is a keeper!

    Sublime taste and easy peasy! We found that 3 hours @ 350F is too long, our meat was overcooked. At this temperature, 2 hours should be sufficient. A food processor raced through the prep. Plan to hang around to enjoy the aroma while roasting. Made for Photo Tag.
