Mexican Pot Roast Dutch Oven
Now I love cooking a pot roast the old-fashioned way. In the oven. And, either in my braising pan or a Dutch oven. This pot roast has that hint of Mexican or Latin in it with the addition of the pico de gallo!
Cuban Pot Roast
Now if you want to give this pot roast some Cuban twist then why not add some garlic and fresh citrus. While the pico de gallo I used has mango in it, you might want to add a tad more to the roast. And, drizzle on some olive oil to intensify that flavoring.
For this roast, I decided not to use a chuck roast because I wanted the finished roast, which I actually cut in half to cook faster, to slice nicely. You can use these types of cuts, shoulder, round tip, sirloin tip, bottom round, top round, eye of round. I chose what was one sale!
Seasoning for Pot Roast
