After the departure of a house-guest left me with half a jug of uninteresting cranberry juice, pondering what I could use it for led to this.
Add beef, cranberry juice, wine and spices into crock-pot and simmer on high for 4 hours or until meat is tender. Add orange zest and stir. Serve hot.
* This recipe shines brightest when you use actual 100% cranberry juice, but it's perfectly tasty with plain old cranberry cocktail too. If you do use pure unsweetened cranberry juice, I recommend adding 1 cup honey along with the zest to offset the overpowering sourness of unadulterated cranberry.
