Pot Roast

Donna Blocker


This is true comfort food! My mother-in-law told me about this almost 20 years ago and I haven't made pot roast any other way since then! We love it.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Pot roast has long been a Sunday tradition in my house, and this recipe brought back so many fond memories. It has all the makings of a real, old-fashioned homey dish... made extra tender by the use of diet Coke! Savory and satisfying, this is a definite must-try.


beef roast (your favorite cut)
1 can(s)
diet coke or diet pepsi
1 pkg
lipton onion soup mix
2 or 3
cubes beef bouillon
carrots, potatoes, onions or your favorite vegetables

Directions Step-By-Step

First I put the meat in the roaster or crockpot. Bouillon cubes beside the meat, pour the cola over all, sprinkle the soup mix on top of the meat.
Then I layer the vegetables all around the meat. Cover & bake slowly for several hours. This makes the best gravy in the world. Enjoy!
