As a busy mom of three young children, finding the time to make a big meal for supper each night is not always an easy task. I am always looking for easy to prepare meals, that are still delicious and something everyone will like. That’s why I love my crockpot! I can throw ingredients in and by suppertime we have a delicious meal!
As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, I plan on sharing some of the easy recipes I make, and hope you’ll share yours in the comments section below. I’m always looking for more recipes, especially crockpot recipes!
My husband loves meat and potato type meals, as do I. We both love a good pot roast, and I appreciate how easy it is to make! I have always made my pot roast in the crockpot, using water and a packet of Onion Soup. Although this has always turned out very good, my hubby and I were ready to try something new. About a month ago, I had been coming across several recipes calling for soda as a substitute for water and thought we’d give it a try.
- 1 pot roast (we’ve used different types of roast, most recently a sirloin tip roast)
- 1 packet of Lipton Dry Onion Soup Mix
- 1 can of Dr. Pepper (or any soda you prefer to try)
1. Place roast in crock pot
2. Pour packet of onion soup mix and soda over roast
3. Cook on low for 8-9 hours or High for 2 hrs/Low for 6 hrs
I didn’t have a can of Dr. Pepper, so I used about 1/2 of a 20 oz bottle of Dr. Pepper instead. It made a nice amount of gravy.
Every time we have this recipe, everyone loves it! The roast is so tender and just falls apart….it’s delicious! We serve it with mashed potatoes and the soda gives both the meat and the gravy such great flavor! We have tried root beer in the past as well, however it was too sweet for our liking. The Dr. Pepper has been our favorite by far!
This is such an easy recipe and one everyone enjoys!! As I said, feel free to leave a link or recipe in the comments section below and share some of your favorite recipes with us as well.
