Fruited Cider Roast

Oxmoor House MARCH 2006

  • Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 3 ounces roast and about 3 tablespoons fruit mixture)


  • 1 (3 1/2-pound) lean boneless top round roast
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • 6 cups apple cider
  • 3 cups cider vinegar
  • 1 (6-ounce) package dried apricot halves, chopped
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice


Trim fat from roast. Sprinkle roast with salt and pepper. Coat a large Dutch oven with cooking spray; place over medium-high heat until hot. Add roast, and cook until browned on all sides.

Combine cider and vinegar; pour over roast. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 3 to 3 1/2 hours or until roast is tender. Transfer roast to a serving platter; set aside, and keep warm.

Skim fat from pan juices. Reserve 2 cups juices; discard remaining juices. Return 2 cups juices to pan; add apricots and remaining 3 ingredients. Cook over medium-high heat 10 minutes, stirring often. Serve fruit mixture with roast.
