    • 12 ounces cherry cola
    • 4 -6 lbs beef roast (chuck or bottom round)
    • salt & pepper
    • 1/4-1/3 cup peach jam or 1/4-1/3 cup apricot jam
    • 1 (2 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix

      Pour half can soda in bottom of crock pot. Add roast, fat side down. Season with kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. Slather half the jam on roast. Turn fat side up, season and slather with remaining jam. Sprinkle soup mix over top. Strip rosemary leaves from stems or toss in the stems (you'll have to fish them out later).

      Cook on high 4-5 hours or low 7-8 hours.
    4. 4
      Add carrots and potatoes for the last 2 hours on high or last 4 hours on low if you don't like them mushy. Turn the roast over when you add the veggies.
    5. 5
      Either make gravy from liquid in pot, or simply spoon juices over beef slices. There was a nice amount in my pot.
