  • 1/2 teaspoon minced onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 sliced onions
  • 1 3/4 cup reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 1 pound red cabbage, shredded
  • 1/2 pound carrots, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1/2 pound potatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks

Preheat oven to 350°F. In a small bowl, combine dill, salt, minced onion, nutmeg and pepper. Pat roast dry with paper towels and rub all over with seasoning mixture.

In a large Dutch oven or oven-proof heavy saucepot, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add roast and brown on all sides. Remove to a plate and set aside. Add onions and 1/4 cup water and cook about 8 minutes or until tender and golden, stirring occasionally.

Stir in broth and cider and bring to a boil. Add roast back to pot, cover and transfer to oven. Roast 2 hours.

Stir in cabbage, carrots and potatoes, cover and continue roasting 45 minutes longer or until vegetables and meat are tender. Add apples during last 10 minutes of cooking. Transfer roast and vegetables to a large serving platter and drizzle with pan juices.
