Coca-Cola Crock Pot Roast

I seem to always be in the search of that perfect crockpot roast recipe. A roast that turns out tender and moist with the least amount of effort possible. Well this recipe really fits the bill. The meat did turn out lovely and tender and the vegetables stewed all day in the sweet sauce were so tasty and on top of that it couldn't be easier to put together. I think I might have found the perfect crockpot roast recipe! Yay! I found this recipe on Pinterest (of course :)), with the original post from the You're Too Crafty blog. I served it with mashed potatoes and brown gravy, but you could throw in red potatoes with the carrots and onions if you'd like a complete meal cooked in the slow cooker.

Coca-Cola Crock Pot Roast

McCormick Slow Cooker Savory Pot Roast seasoning packet
McCormick Au Jus seasoning packet
16 oz or 1 can Coke
4 - 5 lb roast
3 large onions, cut into large chunks
2 lb carrots, cut into chunks or baby carrots

Place onion chunks and carrots in the bottom of a slow cooker. Place roast on top of vegetables. In a bowl combine Coke and seasoning packets. Pour over roast. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. Remove roast from slowcooker and cut against the grain or pull apart in chunks and place on a serving platter. Ladle some of the juices from the slow cooker over the roast to make nice and moist. Remove onions and carrots from slow cooker and serve with roast.

*If desired you can strain out the juices from the slow cooker to serve over the meat and vegetables. You can also make a gravy by adding a little cornstarch mixed with water to the strained juices and bringing to a boil. Once thickened serve over roast and vegetables.
