How to Make It

Step 1

Place a large saucepan coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat until hot. Add roast, browning on all sides. Add broth and next 9 ingredients (broth through bay leaf) to pan; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 3 hours or until tender.

Step 2

Slice roast; place on a serving platter. Set aside; keep warm. Increase heat to medium; cook broth mixture, uncovered, 10 minutes or until reduced to 1 2/3 cups. Discard peppercorns and bay leaf. Serve sauce with roast. Serve with red potatoes, if desired.

This is one of my favorite all-time CL recipes. It makes. A great Sunday dinner with mashed potatoes and green beans on the side.

I clipped this from the magazine back in '97, and it's been one of our favorite winter recipes ever since. I recently lost my hard copy and was thrilled to discover that it's been posted here.

I have been making this recipe for years now and we LOVE it! I do increase the seasoning and add some S & P along with a splash of tabasco at the end. I puree the veggies to make a flavorful sauce. One of my favorite CL recipes.

My family really liked this recipe. I pureed the veggies and the liquid at the end, this way my kids didn't know they had some turnip and it made for a very flavorful, thick gravy. I'll definitely make it again. By the way, I forgot to put in the crushed tomatoes and it tasted fine.

I used the ingredients as listed with no substitutions, and was surprised by the lack of flavor. Served over boiled new potatoes as suggested. I cooked for 9 hours in a slow cooker at low, and pureed the sauce with a hand blender before thickening. Won't make again.

It's really a nice recipe. The turnips give it a different flavor. I will use this recipe again. It's low carb and works perfectly for the South Beach Diet. However, finding those peppercorns was a real pain. I would suggest either tying them in cheesecloth or using ground pepper. (I should have known better.)
