Pot Roast with Apples

1 beef pot roast, about 3 to 4 pounds
1 tsp. vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
3 whole cloves
4 med. apples, cored and quartered (leave skin on)
1 sm. onion, sliced
1/2 c. apple juice or cider
3 tbsp. flour
3 tbsp. water
Preparation:
Trim all excess fat from roast. Lightly rub top of meat with vegetable oil. Sprinkle meat with the salt, pepper and ginger. Insert the whole cloves in meat. Place apples and onions in the bottom of the Crock Pot and put the roast on top of the apples and onions. Pour in the apple juice. Cover and cook on a LOW for 9 to 12 hours, until tender. Remove the roast and apples to a warm platter when fully cooked. Turn the slow cooker to HIGH. Make a smooth paste with the flour and water and stir the paste into the liquid. Cover and cook until thickened. Pour gravy over roast when serving. Makes about 6 to 8 good sized servings.

1/2 tsp. ground ginger
3 whole cloves
4 med. apples, cored and quartered (leave skin on) – I am going to use Fuji
1 sm. onion, sliced
1/2 c. apple juice or cider
3 tbsp. flour
3 tbsp. water

Preheat oven to 350. Trim all excess fat from roast. Lightly rub top of meat with vegetable oil. Brown on all sides in a skillet with just enough oil to keep it from sticking.  Remove from skillet and sprinkle meat with the salt, pepper and ginger. Insert the whole cloves in meat. Place roast in a roasting pan that you have sprayed with Pam.  Place apples and onions around the roast.  Make a paste with the flour and water and mix with apple juice or cider. Pour this over the meat.  Cover and bake 2 – 2 1/2 hours,  or until tender. Check a couple of times through out the baking to be sure it isn’t getting dry.  You may need to add a bit more cider or water.
Remove the roast and apples to a warm platter when fully cooked, slice and pour the gravy over the slices. Makes about 6 to 8 good sized servings.
I am going to serve this with mashed potatoes and salad.
