Reviews for Slow-Cooked Caribbean Pot Roast
"It's a keeper."
"Mmm- I'am not sure what to say about this recipe, i didn't think it was that bad, but my family wasn't trilled by it. I might try it with a pork loin instead of beef roast."
"Flavors are fantastic. Makes lots of sauce. Serve with rice/potatoes to use up the sauce. Smelled awesome as it is cooking. Highly recommend. It is a keeper."
"I really liked this recipe. It was a little to sweet for me so I added some red pepper flakes to give it a little heat. My family loved it."
"Not your "same old" variation on pot roast--deliciously different. I made this last week and my husband's already asked for it again! Thank you, Jenn, for sharing this wonderful recipe."
