A good Fall meal does not get much better than this dish. Tender spicy vegetable pot roast with carrots and lima beans. The added kick of pickling spices and garlic makes it ever so right. After cooking this dish can be served as is or with the beef removed from the pot and sliced and served along side the vegetables. Another idea is to serve this over biscuts, corn bread or serve over rice. Just what the food doctor ordered for a cool fall night.
