This is a wonderful roast handed down from my Polish grandma. We prefer to eat the roasted pickles with the meat, but you can discard if it's not for you... it's the flavor you're going for. This recipe also works well with venison roast. My gram always used to say it was the vinegar in the pickle juice that made this roast tender. Not sure how true that is, but "gram is always right". For ease of clean-up I started using a cooking bag, but you can use your prefered method of roasting. The house will smell amazing! NOTE: This will not make a gravy, but more of an au jus for the meat.
