"I make this for most of the Jewish holidays, but can work for any occasion. Can be frozen and reheated. Tastes even better the second day."

  1. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place beef chuck roast into the skillet and sear until browned on each side. Remove from heat and set aside. Combine tomato sauce, cranberry sauce, horseradish, mustard, cider vinegar, and red wine in a large pot or dutch oven and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Place roast into the pot and cover. Reduce heat to low and simmer until beef is tender, 2 to 3 hours, basting and turning roast occasionally.
  2. Place roast on a large platter. Cover the meat with two layers of aluminum foil, and allow to rest in a warm area for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, increase heat to medium-high and allow the sauce to reduce to desired consistency. Slice the roast and serve with sauce.

Flavor okay but couldn't really taste the cranberry. Alright but nothing special. Maybe adding an onion would help?

Too flavorful, moist and tender to be so easy to prepare! And the sauce is incredible. I'm saving some for burgers on the grill. Thank you!

Wonderful! I've been trying to find a pot roast recipe that both my husband and I love and this is it! Not too sweet, not too acidic. I followed the recipe exactly.

I also threw in some leftover seafood cocktail sauce to use it up since it's basically tomato sauce and horseradish.

I love this. It is sooooo tasty!

I had high hopes for this recipe as we love cranberry sauce. I really couldn't taste the cranberry - there was way to much tomato sauce to allow the cranberry and horseradish flavors to shine. ...

My daughter loved the gravy. I thought it was good but unbalanced. Maybe a pinch of salt on the meat before browning may help.
