Beef Pot Roast with Maple Sweet Potatoes and Cider Gravy

I decided to participate again this week in the Beef. It's What's for Dinner Challenge. When I saw that this week's chosen recipe was Pot Roast, I knew I wanted to give it a try. I usually make pot roast in my crock pot. This recipe cooks it in a stockpot on the stove. I used a beef shoulder roast which is a leaner cut than the chuck roast I normally use. The pot roast turned out tender and very flavorful. The gravy you make out of the liquid was simple to make and delicious. The recipe calls for apple cider but I used apple juice instead. The sweet potatoes are more savory than sweet. If you like the flavor of ginger, you'll like these sweet potatoes. This was a perfect dinner to celebrate the start of Fall.


Mom's Cooking Club Lesson: The Beef. It's What's for Dinner website has an excellent section called Lean Beef. You can download a wallet card called 29 Ways to Love Lean Beef. It is very informative and a great way to help you choose leaner cuts of beef when you go grocery shopping.
