Slow Cooker Cranberry Roast
June 05, 2009

I made this as written with the exception of choosing to use the ocean spray whole berry cranberry sauce. I'm extremely surprised how much juice this created in the crock pot with out adding any liquid at all. I did use a beef chuck roast but I can see how this would be terrific with pork as well. For those who had trouble with the butter and flour. Its a roux so: In a 2 cup glass measuring cup melt your butter in the microwave the add flour and mix with fork. Then slowly ladle juice from the crock into the cup and mix with fork. It will thicken almost immediatly. Continue until you have added enough to make 2 cups making sure your smoothing it with for in between adding liquid. Then add to crock pot, this will ensure your gravy (which is amazing) does not clump. If you choose to use cornstarch dissolve cornstarch in water prior to adding to the gravy mixture. I also suggest cutting back the cornstarch to 1 tbs and not simply subbing it for the flour as cornstarch thickens at twice the rate of flour.
