The crock pot is great for creating savory meat dishes with rich flavor and delicious sauces and gravies. Almost any traditional recipe can be adapted to this versatile appliance. What I love the most about crock pot recipes is that they require minimal preparation time and have a “set it and forget it” cooking style!
This roast can’t go wrong, although it may sound odd, the coca-cola tenderizes the beef so nicely! It is very easy to prepare (under 10 minutes!). It can be made with any beef roast or beef stew meat. Both are great! I served this with my recipe for garlic smashed red potatoes and used the gravy from the pot to top the potatoes, but you can also use red potatoes and throw them in the crock pot with the roast to make things even easier for yourself.
Red potatoes, halved
Place beef in crock pot and top with dry onion soup mix.
Place vegetables around roast.
Set crock pot on low, cook for 6-8 hours. The longer you cook, the more tender the meat becomes.
