Recipe by Fred Forlano
I am posting this recipe as a correction to one posted by another user. I found this recipe on southernfood.about.com after I did a web search because something didn't look right in the original recipe posted here. It is an exceptionally tasty dish, and something very different from your standard 'Pot Roast' fare. Try it when you want a change of flavor. Feel free to dress it up with your favorite vegetables or side dishes.
