Slow Cooker Cola Pot Roast

Source: www.cloverandthyme.com

Ingredients:

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
  • 1 cup cola-flavored carbonated beverage
  • 1/4 cup spaghetti sauce seasoning mix (a store bought packet would also work)
  • 1 coarsely chopped onion
  • ¾ cup chopped celery (about 3-4 stalks, give or take)
  • 1 additional teaspoon salt (the sauce seasoning mix has salt in it as well – so you can omit this if you’re watching your salt)
  • Additional garlic, minced, if desired (there’s dry minced garlic in the seasoning mix, too)
  • 3 lbs. beef chuck roast (the roast pictured above is bottom round)

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, break up tomatoes in their juice. Stir in cola, spaghetti sauce seasoning mix, celery, and the additional salt and garlic if desired. Stir until spaghetti sauce mix is dissolved.
  2. Place the onion in the crock pot and put the roast right on top. Pour the sauce mixture over the roast and cover.
  3. Cook on high for 4 hours, or on low for 6-8 hours.
