The Story

A different take on a traditional roast, this Asian infused pot roast is full of flavor. Simmered with mushrooms and bell peppers, one bite will have you rethinking just what a roast can be!

I always love a good roast. My mother would make them a lot growing up, so to me its a comfort food that reminds me of my roots. I also love making them since their the epitome of a fix it and forget it type of meal, so it’s no wonder my mother made them so much! With a little prep work, you just have to throw it in a pot and come back when it’s ready to eat, so it’s a great meal to make when you’re busy around the house. And today we were very busy with Christmas festivities, so it seemed like the perfect meal to make.

The cooking method may be Western, but the flavor is definitely Asian! Eventually I have a traditional roast method to share, but for now, enjoy this Western fusion dish! Perfectly flavored and fork tender, this roast makes a surprisingly good donburi, or Japanese rice bowl meal!
