Your family and friends won't believe you when you reveal the "secret ingredients" for this flavorful pork roastpeanut butter! I've served this roast to guests for years, and I can't tell you how many times I've sent copies of the recipe home with guests. For a change of taste, you can substitute toasted walnuts for peanuts and use walnut oil instead of peanut butter.

I ALWAYS looked forward to Sunday dinner at my grandparents' house, because Grandmother was the best cook anywhere.
All her meals were delicious, but I especially loved dinners featuring this savory pot roast. It's wonderful with garden-fresh vegetables on the side and a dessert made with apples.

"DADDY was a close friend of the local butcher, Mr. Mason, who always saved the preferred cut for his best customer! To please Daddy, that roast had to be big enough so he could count on leftovers for cold beef sandwiches the following week."
This isn't really an ethnic dish...we named it "Bohemian" because my husband is of Bohemian extractionand he loves this pot roast! I love it, too, because it's so easy to prepare and serve. You can put this "meal in one dish" together to cook, then practically forget about it until dinnertime. Coleslaw is a great accompaniment.
"I THINK what I enjoy most about Ukrainian cooking is the smells it creates. This pork roast reminds me of my mother's kitchenit smells wonderful! My mother canned and preserved in the fall and always used applesauce to glaze the meat. That's probably why I associate the sweet aroma of this hearty stick-to-your-ribs meal with cooler weather."
Spirits will rise with every bite of these sandwiches! "The seasoning has lots of flavor," says Mrs. Jerome Privitera of Geneva, Ohio. "That's what friends tell me they like best when they ask me to bring these to our get-togethers."Mrs. Jerome Privitera, Geneva, Ohio
