    Baby Kato's Note:

    My friend Clint gave me this recipe, I've changed it slightly, This pot roast is wonderful served with Rice & Peas, roasted potatoes and the spicy gravy it cooks in. Put it on the stove and sit back and relax. For a hot n' spicy roast add 1 pepper, for a spicier roast add 2 peppers and for the (on fire) spiciest roast and gravy add 3 peppers but Please beware ... THESE ARE HOT!...I kid you not. Scotch bonnet peppers are also known as habaneros.

      This pot roast was FANTASTIC! For the peppers I used 2 habaneros and it was perfect. The meat was flavorful and so tender. I used just a little cornstarch/water mixture to thicken the gravy and it was rich and delicious and just spicy enough. This easy-to-fix recipe is a new favorite at my house!

      First let me say that I didn't use any of the Scotch Bonnets. Other than that I went right by the recipe and it made a very nice and flavorful roast. DH and DS loved it and are looking forward to hot beef sandwich's form it tomorrow. It was served with rice tonight and the guys thought the gravy was great over it. They said it was very flavorful and it was certainly simple to cook. I cooked it for 3 3/4 hrs and it was perfect.

      My husband loved this. It was a little too spicy for me. I will make it again but will probably only use 2 peppers.
