Really Old-Fashioned Marinated Roast

A couple weeks ago there was a marinade for steak in the Toronto Star.

We thought it would be just as tasty for a roast beef.

Here's the marinade:

1/2 bottle of rich full-bodied red wine
2 T of sugar
6 whole cloves
1/2 t grated nutmeg
1/2 t cinnamon
1 t orange zest
salt and pepper

Combine wine and sugar in a large pot and bring to boil; lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and orange zest, and remove pan from heat to cool. Put steaks in a large baking dish and pour marinade over them. Marinade steaks in the refrigerator for at least several hours and up to 3 days.

We had the roast marinading since Saturday. I put it in the crock pot this morning.

I had the au jus on the side for dipping. The different flavours were still there and were very delicious!

Looks good. Must be nice to come home and its ready to eat. I do not have a crockpot.

You don't have to put it in the crockpot. It's actually a marinade for steak that you would BBQ or grill.
