Cranberry Pepper Roast
1 (4 pound) beef sirloin tip roast
2 tablespoons cracked pepper
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 2/3 cups cranberry cocktail
Score meat lightly in a crisscross pattern. Rub all sides, but not ends, with pepper. In Dutch oven or roasting pan, brown meat in oil over medium heat, about15 minutes.
Pour cranberry cocktail over meat. Cover; bake at 325 degrees F for 2 1/2 hours or until beef is tender. Place meat on warm platter to keep warm while preparing gravy.
Cranberry Gravy: Strain hot broth from meat; measure 3 cups and heat to boiling. In tightly covered jar, shake 3/4 cup cranberry cocktail and 1/3 cup all-purpose flour; stir into hot liquid. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute. Season with salt.
Serve with hot rice.
