Roast In Apricot Mushroom Sauce

Roast In Apricot Mushroom Sauce


5-pound end of steak roast
2 onions, diced
3 cloves garlic, whole or diced
1 pound mushrooms, sliced
2/3 cup apricot preserves
1 cup dry red wine
½ cup water
¼ tsp pepper
2 bay leaves

Begin preparation at least 6 hours before serving. Preheat oven to 350.

Trim roast. Place vegetables, apricot preserves, liquid, and seasoning into a medium bowl. Mix until combines. Place meat in roasting pan and pour apricot mixture over it. Bake covered for 2 to 2 ½ hours.

Check roast during baking. You may want to turn it over so that flavor of juice gets well absorbed. When done, remove from oven and allow to cool. Refrigerate for a few hours or overnight.

One hour before serving, slice meat into ¼ inch slices. Preheat oven to 300. Return meat to sauce and reheat for 30 minutes. Serve warm.

NOTE: if serving on Shabbat, remove the meat from the fridge two hours before serving, let warm at room temperature.

USE: 1 covered roasting pan
YIELDS: 10-12 servings

Wine~Wine~Wine I was told once, that if you don't know what wine to use when cooking then use the one that you enjoy the taste.

If that helps you. Good luck Chefs!!! Reply

RE: wine in recipes SO many recipes list the use of white or red wines. They may also list as dry or sweet, etc. I know nothing about wine. It would be nice IF the writer of the recipe would at least give some suggestion as to the variety of wine instead of keeping us guessing. Reply

roast apricoat and mushroom sauce when you use apricot it's better not to mix it with garlic, nor mushrooms nor red wine. Try this: use white wine instead of red one, add raisins instead of mushrooms and some nuts also. You may cook the onions with a small amount (coffeee or tea spoonfull) of sugar. It will be delicious!
Use Veal instead of red adult bovine meat, the effect will be even better! Reply
