Pot Roast

The pot roast is a delicious dish of Greek (and not only) cuisine. A piece of pork, usually boneless, meat braised with a few vegetables.
The slow cooking makes the meat more tender and tastier. The rich-tasting broth, which contains the aromas and ingredients of meat and vegetables gives us, at the end, a very tasty, orange-coloured, spicy sauce that will accompany this dish.
