Cola Roast

READY IN: 3hrs 20mins
Recipe by Hippie2MARS

This is so easy it's almost embarrassing! This dish makes it's own gravy while it cooks. Although it sounds like an odd combination, it is truly delicious! *If you don't want to defrost the roast first, you can still use the same recipe, but cook about 4 1/2 to 5 hours.

I have made this roast before and despite the oddity of the ingredients, it is fabulous. I use one can of cola (NOT DIET!!!), and half-fat cream of mushroom soup. I always make it in the crockpot - cooking all day on low. Yum! Try it, you won't regret it!
