Cajun Pot Roast

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by Recipewrestler

A versatile recipe that can be used with a variety of meats: pork, lamb, venison, etc. Based on a recipe in the Sugar Busters Quick and Easy Cookbook, but dressed to kill, the way I like it!

Very good and wonderful flavor! I opted the mushrooms since my DH hates mushrooms, and added more garlic because my family loves garlic.
