I just made some hot coco and a batch of muffins, I will get you some while you stand here by the fire and warm up. I have been working on the menu for next week, so lets finish it up so we can visit.

Cranberry Beef Sliders
Miz Helen's Kitchen
1 3 to 5 pound chuck or arm roast
1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
4 large yellow onions sliced thick
2 cups whole cranberry sauce
3 pods garlic sliced
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons pepper
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 sprigs of fresh thyme or 2 teaspoons dried thyme
2 long springs of rosemary or 3 teaspoons dried rosemary
2 cups beef broth
Mix a rub out of the salt, pepper, pepper flakes and any dried herb. Rub the meat on both sides with the rub. In a heavy hot Dutch Oven pour the EVOO and brown the seasoned roast. Place the sliced onions and garlic around and on top of the roast. Add the cranberry sauce and any fresh herbs to the top of the roast. Pour the beef broth around the edge of the Dutch Oven so as not to disturb the seasons. Cover and bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes, then reduce the heat to 325 degrees for 2 hours. Let the meat rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing. This is one of those melt in you mouth roast that can be used for any occasion. Enjoy!

  1. This is a very creative, yummy idea. I never would have thought to use cranberries. Yum!

  2. Oh, I love these sliders and love the tartness of the cranberries!

  3. Those look delicious! What a great combination!

  4. I have a recipe for a meatball appetizer that uses cranberry sauce ~ really tasty! I'm so glad you're preparing these sliders for Sunday...can't wait to bite into one. :-)

    Thanks for sharing so many goodies! Stay warm ~

    P.S. Almost forgot ~ my favorite restaurant is Pappadeaux's...hands down!

  5. I am drooling literally! I wish yoou were my neighbor. I could taste one or two of these beauties!

  6. The sliders look heavenly. I can't remember if I've told you or not, but I have so enjoyed your Pickle Pot. I keep it going all winter.

    Try a new restaurant that you've heard good things about. New restaurants try harder to please. Let us know!

  7. Those sliders look really good! I might try them with some sliced avocado on top because I love the combination of cranberry and avocado :)

    Thanks for sharing!

  8. I like the way these look and sound!! Yummmm

  9. Those sliders look so absolutely delicious. My teen is bugging me for weeks to make him sliders. He loves them.

  10. Oh Miz Helen, that recipe has my mouth just watering. What great flavours you have used in your cranberry beef sliders - yum!

  11. Cranberry Beef Sliders? Oh, my...absolutely adore it! Such an amazing droolworthy beef, it looks like it melts in your tender!

  12. Cranberry Beef Sliders. Heaven is now on earth! You are amazing!! Wish I was at your house to watch the game :)

    By the way- wanted to tell you the Seasonal SUnday recipes DO NOT have to be gluten free. The event is open to everyone- the only requirement of course is one seasonal Ingredient.

    xo, Brittany

  13. I don't even eat beef and these still look good! The cranberry flavor must be fabulous!
