Cajun-Style Pot Roast

I often makes this zippy roast when expecting dinner guests. It gives me time to visit with them, and even my friend who's a chef enjoys this dish. —Ginger Menzies, Oak Creek, Colorado

    We did not enjoy this recipe that much. There did not seem to be that much flavor in the meat and the sauce was too runny for our liking. The meat was very tender but the sauce had all the flavor.
