Oriental Pot Roast

READY IN: 3hrs 20mins
Recipe by KeyWee

This recipe comes from the Oct/Nov issue of Taste of Home. I have not tried it but wanted it in My Cookbook as DH is a huge pot roast fan and I am always looking for something different. There didn't seem to be a similar recipe on Zaar, so if you try this, let us know what you think!

Nice moist beef roast! We really enjoyed the pineapple flavour of the sauce, and the meat was very tender. I saw carrots listed in the instructions, but there were no carrots listed in the ingredients, so I hadn't bought any. Overall, a nice recipe. Thanks KeyWee!
