Indian Pot Roast

A pot roast is much easier to prepare than you might think and makes a fabulous one-dish dinner...and even better leftovers. It's simple to customize a pot roast by using different seasonings, liquid and vegetables. Recipe from the Whole Foods Market website: http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/3108
