Spicy Pork Pot Roast

Spicy Pork Pot Roast at Miz Helen's Country Cottage
We really enjoy a great pot roast with all the wonderful root vegetables roasting slowly in the blend of seasons and juices. Our vegetables for this pot roast came right out of our garden, and there is no flavor like garden vegetables. This is a very easy recipe that will serve a crowd or give you some nice freezer meals with your left over's. We often times take the left over's and make small individual freezer meals that sure are nice on a busy day!
