Stove Kine Pot Roast
Well, this has been my craving for the week. I came up with this recipe a few weeks ago and boy am I happy that it is now on one of my top 10 creations. Over the past years I have tried to come up with different ways to make a flavorful and moist pot roast. The stove top method really is the only way to go in my opinion. I was mistaken by trying to create a mouthwatering pot roast in the oven. This recipe does take a little nuturing and time. Once you have made this recipe, I am sure you will agree, NO MORE OVEN! ENJOY

Add about 1/8 c. mochiko in a bowl and water to create a thin paste.Turn broth on medium heat and slowly add mochiko paste slowly, a little at a time because it takes a few minutes to thicken.
