|Key words:||dried cranberries, prunes, apricots, beef||Category:||Main Dishes|
|Ingredients:||5 lb beef roast
1 package of dried cranberries (the typical size you would buy in the grocery store.)
1 package prunes
1 handful dried apricots
|Preparation:||Take the roast, and put it in a roaster oven, or crock-pot. Cover the roast halfway with water. Add the fruits, and turn it on high (450?) for about 30 minutes. Then, turn the temperature down to a lower setting (low or 250?), and let it continue cooking until the meat is tender and starts to fall apart. Take the meat out of the juices, sprinkle it with sea salt, and serve it forth. Cooking time will vary depending on the cut, size, and quality of roast, however most will be done within 3 or 4 hours.|
|Notes:||I recently did a Viking feast for the last Calontir crown tournament. I had some popular recipes I thought I'd share with everyone.
When Jorunn, our new Laurel, found out I was planning a Viking feast, she offered me assistance and many of the recipes she had already researched and tested. The following recipe is an adaptation of one of hers.
