“I had a live in housekeeper who prepared this roast. We called it Chela's Roast, but later learned it was Boliche roast. This recipe is a combination of a half English, half Spanish recipe I wrote down as she cooked the roast and a Cuban Boliche Recipe I found. The roast goes well with any Hispanic rice dish.”
