Featured Recipe: Melt-in-Your-Mouth Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Serves: 8
Total Calories: 227


1 (3 to 4 pound) beef chuck roast
1 (12-ounce) can Cola (not diet)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup chili sauce
1 packet dry onion soup mix
5 new red potatoes, cut up
2 cups baby carrots
1 cup tomato sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons vinegar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 dash ground cloves
1 dash allspice
3/4 cup dried minced onion
1/3 cup beef bouillon
4 teaspoons onion powder
1/4 teaspoon crushed celery seeds
1/4 teaspoon sugar


Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker. Cook on low 8 to 10 hours.

This roast is also good with just the coke and onion soup mix. For the demonstrated recipe we used store bought ingredients for convenience but included the recipes for homemade brown sugar, chili sauce and onion soup mix.

Chili Sauce Substitute:
Mix together. Refrigerate unused portion.

Homemade Onion Soup Mix:
When you're tired of "mystery ingredients" and unnecessary additives, make your own healthy version of what you'll typically find on grocer's shelves!

Combine all ingredients and store in an air-tight container. About 5 tablespoons of mix is equal to one (1 1/4 ounce) package of soup mix.

NOTE: To make a dip, mix 5 tablespoons of soup mix with one pint sour cream.
