Cuban Boliche Roast

I had a live in housekeeper who prepared this roast. We called it Chela's Roast, but later learned it was Boliche roast. This recipe is a combination of a half English, half Spanish recipe I wrote down as she cooked the roast and a Cuban Boliche Recipe I found. The roast goes well with any Hispanic rice dish.

Irish, I haven't made this recipe yet. However all you need to do is put the rest of the ingredients over the roast.

I would like to try this recipe, and at the risk of sounding stupid,especially given the good reviews. . . What does one do with the oregano, bay leaves, paprika, tomato sauce, onions, and green pepper?
