Beef in Walnut Sauce

4 lbs rump roast -- cubed
Seasoned flour
Olive oil
1/2 cup water
1 can (8-oz) tomato sauce
4-6 garlic cloves -- minced
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1 whole cinnamon stick
8 whole cloves
8 allspice
1 cup ground walnuts
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Sliced sourdough French bread -- toasted

Dredge meat in seasoned flour; shake off excess; heat oil in large frying pan; brown meat well. Transfer to crock-pot. Pour water into frying pan to loosen drippings. Add to crockpot with tomato sauce, garlic and vinegar. Place cinnamon stick, cloves, and allspice in a tea ball or cheesecloth. Add to pot. Cover. Cook on LOW 8 to 10 hours, or until very tender. If necessary, cook down pan juices. Add walnuts and lemon juice. Heat to serving temperature. Serve over buttered toast. Makes 12 servings.

Lucy, there is something about this recipe that frightens me. I think it is the cinnamon stick. Anyway, after you try it, let us know because I trust your judgement.

I'd like to know how it turns out too! Sounds like some different ingredients, but sometimes thing surprise us!

Oh girl, I just made that yesterday!

It was the best I've ever had. I did a few substitutions. I used beef brisket trimmed very well.

Then I rubbed lemon juice and smoke juice all over it. The rest I left out, I just wrapped it in foil and slow baked it for three hours in the oven.

I would recommend your recipe to anyone. And they shouldn't hestitate to make substitutions like I did if they don't have all those exotic ingredients.

Please let us know how yours turns out.
Thanks. Mrs. Jim might like the unaltered 'Beef in Walnut Sauce' recipe. I will tell her about it.
