  • 4 to 5 pounds beef roast (rump or round is good)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil or bacon grease
  • Flour
  • 1/2 pound cranberries
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cinnamon sticks (each 3 inches long), broken
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 1-1/2 cups beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons horseradish


Place roast and oil in heavy Dutch oven. Brown well over medium heat. Pour off fat and combine with an equal amount of flour. Reserve.
