Here is today's recipe...YUM!

Carolina Pot Roast with Ginger Snap Gravy

adapted from a recipe inThe 150 Best Slow Cooker Recipes by Judith Finlayson

serves about 6

4 pound eye round roast or rump roast
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large sweet onion, finely chopped (Maui or Vadalia)
3 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tablespoons ginger root, grated
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon pepper
1/3 cup flour
3 cups beef broth, low salt
2 teaspoons beef bouillon
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup ginger snap crumbs
2 tablespoons brown sugar

Wide egg noodles, cooked and drained

Heat oil in a large saute pan over medium high heat. Brown roast on all sides. Transfer to crock pot. Reduce heat to medium and saute onions until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, ginger, chili powder, nutmeg, beef bouillon, and pepper and cook for about a minute. Sprinkle flour over mixture and cook for another minute. Add beef broth and cook for another minute.

Pour mixture over roast, cover and cook on low for 9 - 10 hours, until meat is tender.

Remove meat and add sour cream and ginger snap crumbs. If the gravy seems to thick, add a little hot water. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve over noodles.

Sounds super yummy. I've made ginger snap gravy for years, but usually with Sauerbraten.

Yum, I love the sound of "ginger snap gravy." Last week I made a lamb stew sprinkled with ginger (and cooked with pears) and it reminded me exactly of gingersnaps! That's just a great fall flavor :) Thanks for sharing this.
