LOOKING for: Lost recipe :o( Maybe you can help!!

glenda_alDecember 2, 2005

Along with divorce, I lost my favorite of all Christmas Eve recipes.

Maybe you can help.

It's a pot roast, that's cooked with a spicy (not hot) tomato sauce. Remember adding whole cloves??? or allspice???? know it had bay leaves.

When done, you removed the meat and stirred in cooked spaghetti.

Any help will be appreciated.

Glenda - does this sound anything like it?

Peloponnesian Pot Roast

2-1/2 to 3 lb. Beef pot roast
8 cloves garlic-cut in half
Salt & pepper to taste
2 tablespoons cooking oil
Hot cooked spaghetti
3 cups tomato sauce
2 tablespoons brown vinegar
1 teaspoons ground nutmeg
6-8 whole cloves
1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoons ground allspice

Make slits in top of roast with tip of sharp knife; insert garlic halves into slits. Sprinkle roast with salt & pepper. In large skillet, brown meat on both sides in hot oil. Take meat from skillet & put into small roaster.

Combine tomato sauce, vinegar, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon & allspice. Pour mixture over meat in roaster.

Cover and roast at 350 degrees for about 1-1/2 hours or until meat is tender.

Remove meat to cutting board; keep warm.

Bring juices in roaster to boiling; boil, uncovered, about 5 minutes or until liquid is reduced a bit. Remove the cloves from the sauce. Remove the garlic from meat, if desired. Cut meat into serving portions & serve over spaghetti with a little sauce over the top.

Glenda, I think she probably means apple cider vinegar.

Sounds like that would make a good "goulash" too using beef cubes.

How weird that it only shows that there was 1 response (your latest one, Glenda) on the main page. Wonder if it will now show 2 when I post this?

I wonder if I could make that in my Pressure Cooker?

It's new, so I haven't ventured from recipes that I follow precisely.

atd, you should add at least a cup of water to the recipe if you want to cook it in the pressure cooker. With no water and only tomato sauce, the meat and sauce could scorch on the bottom. Depending on the size of your PC, you would need to add a minimum of 1 cup water I would think.
