Pot Roast, Paid Forward

A few months back Tammy Lankford posted a blog on a 'Pepsi Pot Roast' that was cooked in a crock pot. 
We thought, 'sounds yummy, let's give it a try!'

We did and it was delicious!
We don't know what the best part about it was. Whether it was the amount of tasty gravy that it made and we used later, the tenderness of the roast or just how simple it was to make!

We would have just re-blogged Tammy's post, but we didn't copy that, just the recipe.
Here it is in case you want to give it a try, but please, give all the kudos to Tammy!   Tammy Lankford

Pepsi (or Coke) Pot Roast

Put roast that has been seasoned with salt & pepper into crock pot with 2 cans of cream of anything soup. Tammy used 1 can of cream of mushroom, and 1 can of cream of celery (both 99% fat free), 2 cans of diet coke, 1 package of Lipton onion soup mix. Stir just a little and cook for 10 hours on low or 8 hours on high. Tammy found this works well with any cut of meat. Easy right? Give it a try!  

Tammy paid it forward by sharing this excellent recipe here in the Rain and we paid it forward by making it for our family! Your turn!

This sounds interesting with a soda pop in a pot roast.   I have to say my cooking  is not so good so hopefully the hubby will like this one....

Wow this does sound yummy and easy too. My motto is if dinner cant be done in 30 minutes or less than it doesnt happen. I love to cook but time is an issue now a days and crock pot cooking is a wonderful alternative.

This one is a no brainer Stephanie, good luck with it! Just heard the pop tenderizes the meat and that explains how it was so tender!

Bon Appetite Michael!

It is Martha! Yes under 30 minutes and no more than 5 ingredients LOL!

My husband always makes this for me....we also add a bag of baby carrots or sliced carrot chips and a couple of cans of sliced baby white potatoes!    It is the best...the meat is soooooooo  tender and yummy!    WHen he comes out to visit me...we make up a double batch and freeze it in smaller containers for me to enjoy later!!!

Al and Peggy I would have never thought of cooking a roast in Pepsi or Coke, but I will take your word for it that it is good.

LOL! Ya, but it solves the 'what's for dinner' question doesn't it? AR to the rescue!! 

Try it Wanda! You will really love it!! 

That sounds delicious Deborah! And then the whole dinner is complete. Will try that next time!

Your welcome Robert but the thanks really goes to Tammy!! ;)

We never did either George and when we were doing it was "ok here goes nothing! Either this is going to taste real good or yucky" Turns out it is real good!!

Hi Al and Peggy - I had a relative who years ago would use Coca Cola in her pot roasts.

Anita, my sister told me the coke acts like a tenderizer, who knew? This is great for those busy days!

It really did Jane and it is still travelling....wonder where we will see it again?

We had never heard of it Marc until Tammy posted it and believe us, we would never had tried it without the recommendation! LOL! Wonder what you can do with orange pop?

Al and Peggy, I have tried BBQing steaks marinated in beer, I have a feeling that the coke (or pepsi) will have the same effect.  I am forwarding this to the head chef for her consideration ;-)

Well thanks Al and Peggy.  Who knows what one will find when they search on AR.  I was looking for that post to pass along to someone who wanted crock pot recipes and found this.  You're too sweet.  And I'm glad you enjoyed it.  I love that left over gravy on just plain white loaf bread for lunch the next day sometimes.
