Crockpot Pot Roast

Crockpot Pot Roast

All this spring snow made me crave some slow cooked all day long, cheesy, melt in your mouth comfort food. Inspiration came again from Pinterest. And from the crockpot challenge!


Original recipe is from You’re Too Crafty…

And here is my version:

McCormicks slower cooker Savory Pot Roast season packet
An Au Jus packet
1 can diet coke
Boneless Cross Rib Roast

1. Put meat in the crock pot.
2. Mix the slow cooker seasoning with 1 cup of water
3. Pour over meat
4. Add diet coke 
5. Cover with your lid for 8 Low or 4 hours on high (try to not lift the lid!)
6. Right before you are ready to eat, sprinkle dry au jus packet over the top and mix
7. Shred meat and enjoy!

I made my pot roast into sandwiches. Good ciabatta rolls, toasted in the oven. Topped with provolone cheese and melted under the broiler for a minute. Topped with meat and sauce. Delicious! Melty cheese, crunchy bread, rich sauce and melt in your mouth meat from cooking all day long. Perfect for our cold, snowy winter spring Minnesota nights. Winking smile 


Ok, now I am ready for 70 degrees this weekend! Smile Happy Spring.

    Crock pot meals are so comforting. I made a crock pot roast with a can of dr. Pepper this winter, I thought it was strange to add soda to a roast but it turned out really well. I’m sorry you still have nasty cold snow but glad you get to enjoy the comfort of winter foods a little while longer.

      Love the crockpot! I just wish there were more summer meals you could make with it because it gets much more use in the winter!

  3. Yum, this looks great! Like you, I wish there were more summer meals to make in the crockpot. I love the crockpot because you can just let it sit all day and then you have a yummy meal ready in minutes. Just what busy moms need!

  4. Bahhh!! 70 degrees, just in time for me to leave – of course! Any ideas of substitutes I could use for the soda? I don’t buy it/drink it so I’d love to find something else I could use!
