Slow Cooker Pot Roast - Use Up Leftover Soda Pop


  • a pot roast approximately 2 pounds
  • 1 package onion soup mix
  • 1 can soda pop (Most people I know use a cola flavor like Pepsi or Coke, but I've heard that youuse a lemon-lime flavor, too. Really, I think you could use any flavor.)
  • 1 can low fat cream of mushroom soup
  • Fresh veggies like potatoes, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and onions


  • Put the pot roast into your slow cooker. You can brown it ahead of time if you're so inclined, but that's a matter of taste.
  • Sprinkle the onion soup mix over the pot roast.
  • Pour the soup and soda pop over top of the pot roast.
  • Toss the veggies into the crock to fill it up. We really pack the veggies in.
  • Cook for 6-8 hours on low, and the pot roast and veggies should come out perfectly cooked.
  • If you want to make gravy from the broth that's left over, you can whisk in a tablespoon or two of flour or cornstarch and allow it to cook a bit longer in the slow cooker.
