Do you love a pot roast? Is coca cola your drink of choice? Well, how about a pot roast that is to-die-for and has as one of its ingredients coca cola! You won't taste the cola, and the gravy is to die for! Another plus is that this roast can also be made in a slow cooker.
1 (3 to 4 pounds) beef chuck roast
3-5 cloves garlic, cut into slivers
Kosher salt and pepper, to taste
1 Tablespoon olive oil
8 ounces mushrooms, cleaned
1 pound baby red potatoes, scrubbed, skins on
8 ounces baby carrots, peeled
1 medium onion, very thinly sliced
1 cup Coca-Cola or other cola, at room temperature
8 ounces tomato sauce
1 packet dry onion soup mix
1 Tablespoon sweet Hungarian paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons dried oregano
Note: Use the same method in a large oval slow cooker, except without foil, cooking on low setting for 6 to 8 hours. Or, omit the vegetables (except the sliced onions), and cook the roast alone as a main dish.
