The addition of hot sauce zips up this cut of meat. It takes me back to spicy dinners I enjoyed as a child in the Southwest. I like to use the leftovers in different dishes-including barbecued beef sandwiches, quesadillas and burritos. —Carol Stevens, Basye, Virginia
Seasoned with Southwestern zest, this lean beef roast is fork-tender and gets a little kick from salsa. "My husband, Phillip, and our two young daughters raise our own cattle and hogs on a farm just outside Freeburg, Missouri," writes Cathy Sestak. "This one of our favorite ways to eat beef. Enjoy!"
My friends rave about the different taste the cranberry sauce gives to this roast, and I couldn't agree more. I've made the sauce ahead of time and frozen it, which saves preparation time on a busy schedule.
Good old-fashioned pot roast has a new mouthwatering flavor the way Deby Kominski prepares it. "This colorful dish makes an appealing holiday meal," she writes from Honesdale, Pennsylvania. "The cranberries mixed with horseradish give the beef terrific taste. You can add any vegetables you like to make it more unique."—Deby Kominski, Honesdale, Pennsylvania
Beef chuck roast gives this classic sandwich and its rich broth a hearty flavor. Add a crusty roll and you have a filling meal. This is also a great "do-ahead" recipe that can be prepared several days before serving.
This tender and juicy roast looks beautiful when I serve it to guests. It also makes the house smell wonderful as it cooks. I usually serve it with warm French bread and a salad topped with buttermilk dressing. —Brenda Hlivyak, La Center, Washington
