Hearty New England Dinner Recipe

Publisher Photo
This favorite slow-cooker recipe came from a friend. At first, my husband was a bit skeptical about a roast that wasn't fixed in the oven, but he loves the old-fashioned goodness of this version. The horseradish in the gravy adds zip. -Claire McCombs, San Diego, California

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 17, 2013

"WE love this recipe! My 7 yo loves it as well. Only thing I do different is I only cook the cabbage about 20 minutes as we prefer it crisper!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 13, 2012

"So easy and nicely flavored. I cooked it longer (a total of 12 hours) and it was so tender even my mom, who has trouble chewing could eat it."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 9, 2010

"This is a good recipe but other than the horseradish it not a unique recipe. I currently don't have a crock pot so did this in the oven. The meat would probably have been more tender and moister in the MW."
