I honestly can't figure out why I placed this on my website and didn't blog about it? I think the computer gremlins got hungry and ate the blog post!! I don't blame them, this slow cooker recipe is so easy and the results are superb! This was one of the very first recipes I shared on my Facebook page when I started it. It remains one of the most viewed and most popular. I beg you to give this a try - you won't regret it. I usually roast a mix of root vegetables and potatoes on a sheet pan (rolled in a little olive oil & sprinkled with salt & pepper) to serve with this roast. ~Enjoy! Diane
Coca Cola Beef Roast for *slowcooker
3-4lbs any cut of Beef Roast (I used Cross Rib Beef Chuck Roast)
1 Can Coke (not diet)
1 Packet Lipton Onion Soup Mix
1 Can condensed Cream of potato soup (or Cream of Mushroom)
fresh mushrooms, *optional
Place meat in slowcooker, spread soup over roast.
Sprinkle Lipton onion mix over entire roast, pour coke (not diet) down around all and cover. Cook High 6-8 Hours or Low 10-12 Hours.
The cola really enhances the beef flavor and breaks down the meat into fall apart goodness!! This couldn't have been easier or better tasting!
didn't even have to thicken the "gravy" because it was SO tasty as is!!!! I usually end up adjusting recipes by adding things - I wanted to try this "as is" first - and "as is" it's amazing!
Using cream of mushroom soup and *Adding fresh mushrooms in the last 20-30 mins of cooking time would be wonderful (sadly, I am allergic to them)
