Coca Cola Pot Roast


I know I said less crockpot recipes and more stove top recipes, but this was one dish I made last year. I actually just got back to the bay area from my extended winter break vacation, and it’s taking me a while to get back into the groove of things.

You know how it is… I still have one and a half luggages laying on the floor in front of my door, waiting to get unpacked and put away. It took all my energy plus some just to go and buy groceries today. I had to restock everything since we had an empty fridge from being away for so long.


Restocking an empty fridge isn’t exactly a bad thing. Actually, it’s great. I get to start over fresh and follow my New Years resolution by eating healthier. All the temptation is taken out by simply not buying any bad groceries.


Now, I have a lot of fish, vegetables, and fruits. It’s going to be hard for my DB to eat lunch, though, since he doesn’t eat anything green or from the sea. Oh well.


Since we don’t drink any soda in my household, I had to go out and buy one can of coke. In case you were wondering, you can’t just buy a can of coke. I tried. I ended up buying an individual plastic bottle instead (by the checkout line) and using a portion of that.

Coca Cola Pot Roast


  • 2.5-3 pounds Beef Chuck Roast Boneless
  • 1 can of Coke
  • 1 packet Mccormick's Slow Cooker Savory Pot Roast seasoning packet
  • 1 cup water


  1. Place the chuck roast on the bottom of your slow cooker.
  2. Mix the seasoning packet with the 1 cup of water, pour on top of the meat. Pour the entire can of coke on top.
  3. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours, or low for 6-8 hours.

    did you end up liking this recipe? sometimes you post recipes for things that you say didn’t turn out well, so I’m curious whether I should try this or not. did the pot roast turn out to be sweet or could you not even taste the Coke after it cooked? just wondering…

      hi mia! the flavor was great. the coke actually didn’t even make it as sweet like i thought it would. i think the seasoning packet covered most of the sugar in it. the only thing i would have done differently is left in in the crockpot for just a bit longer so that the meat becomes more tender. hope that helps!
