pinch tips: How to Quarter a Chicken


2-3 pound chuck roast
1 package onion soup mix
1/4 cup water
1 onion, chopped (i use two and slice them in chunks)
1 pint canned carrots (i use fresh baby carrots cooked, i dont like canned)
1 clove garlic, minced
6 ounces coke – no diet stuff here and i never use anything but real coke
1/4 cup jack daniels

Directions Step-By-Step

Add water and 1 Tablespoon of onion soup mix to slow cooker
Place half of the onions in, add garlic.
Salt and pepper all sides of the roast and place in slow cooker
(I usually sear the meat on the stove prior to adding to slow cooker, it adds color and seals in the flavor and juices)
Add carrots and the rest of the onions
Pour remaining onion soup mix over roast
Add Coke and Jack Daniels
Cover and cook on low 7-8 hours
Remove carrots and roast from crockpot
Make gravy from the juices and serve with mashed potatoes

Hey Deneece...anything that begins with "Jack Daniels" has got to be good. LOL
Have you ever seared the meat before putting in the crock? Just thinking it would give it better color. What do you think? Saving......

lol Joanne I always sear my meat before i put it in crock or oven etc to keep in the juices and better color. I thought i was just being OCDish lol! My nana taught me to always sear my meat and to never be in a hurry it will taste much better and be more tender if you cook it longer on lower lol...i probably should put the searing thing in the recipes huh?

This sounds really yummy. I am wondering about the high sodium content in the dry soup mix though, since I need to avoid salt when cooking for myself - is there a low-sodium version?

I am not sure Kay however I have made this for my dad who is on a low sodium diet also, i used extra chopped onion, onion powder and a no salt seasoning instead of the onion soup mix. It gives a little different taste of course but its still good : )

Deneece, I can't wait to try this. And you are right, you should NEVER heat diet coke.
