Asian Pot Roast

I love Asian food, so this pot roast satisfies my cravings. The original recipe called for spinach, but I use sugar snap peas and carrots instead. Sometimes I serve the Asian pot roast, vegetables and pineapple over rice or egg noodles. —Donna Staley, Randleman, North Carolina

    I added spinach instead of the peas. It turned out very well & my family liked it with rice! It was a great change to a pot roast!!!
