Ultimate Savory Pot Roast w/Gravy

Back in February Me, my sister Jessica, my mom Heather, my cousin Kasey and a good friend of ours Barb went to see The  Addams Family play here at our local performing arts hall. We love going to musicals its kind of our "thing" we like to do with just the girls! Here is a picture from the matinée we went to.

The night before the play my mom and sister came and spent the night at my house so they could attend church with me and my husband in the morning before we went to the play. But before my mom and sister were to get here we had planned on "spring cleaning" our downstairs bedroom. I knew that because of this I wasn't going to want to cook a huge meal that night because I would be tired from cleaning so I planned on making a roast in the crockpot. 

I found one I had never used before on the Crockingirls website and thought it was pretty interesting since it included a can of coke in its ingredients!! It was super simple to throw together and super delicious to eat. I served it with rice, green beans and a dinner roll!! 

Ultimate Savory Pot Roast w/Gravy
  • 4 Pounds Chuck Roast (any beef roast will do)
  • 1 Package Savory pot roast seasoning
  • 1 Can Coke
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 1 Package Au Jus gravy mix


Step One

Mix the pot roast seasoning with the cup of water in slow cooker.

  1. Step Two

    Place roast in mixture, then pour coke over top 

    Step Three

    Cover with lid and cook on LOW for 8hrs. DO NOT LIFT THE LID!

    Step Four

    After it's done cooking take the lid off (depending how lean your roast was at this point I skim the fat off) and sprinkle the AuJus packet over the top of roast and replace lid for about 5 mins. Take roast out of slow cooker then just slice, serve, and enjoy. :)

    And of course here is my final plate!! 

    Hope you guys try it and like it as much as we all did! I have many more recipes that im gonna try and post soon so check back later for more!!
