Pot Roast Caribe

READY IN: 8hrs 25mins
Recipe by Lizzymommy

Delicious variation of the basic pot roast with a Caribbean flair. The vegetable amounts are a guess, as I usually just fill up the crockpot with however many vegetables will fit.

The spices blended together so nicely! Awesome flavor and even my 5 mo old ate it! But it was still missing something I cant put my finger on.
