Ingredients

  • 1 beef pot roast (4 to 5 pounds)

Directions

Place pot roast in a large glass bowl. In a large saucepan, combine the vinegar, bay leaves, cloves, peppercorns, onion, sugar, salt and garlic. Bring to a boil.

"This was very easy and very good. I made it in the oven instead of on the stove. Served it with Mashed potatoes."
