Top Review by Shirl

This is a really easy and tastey meal! I did sub cream of mushroom for the cream of celery, and tossed in some mushrooms and chopped onions that i needed to use up. I will be making this again but will add garlic, bay leaf and some thyme just to take it to another level. Thank you for posting sheerkerry, we enjoyed a very tastey meal served over rice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pour 1/2-1 can of Pepsi Cola into your crock pot and set temperature to low. I typically use a full can of Pepsi. It will yield a greater amount of gravy in the end.
  2. Place your 2 - 3 lb Beef Roast in the crock pot and sprinkle the Dry Onion Soup mix over roast and the Pepsi.
  3. While cooking the roast on low, fry the bacon to a crisp, crumble it and set aside.
  4. Measure to taste 3-5 tablespoons of bacon drippings and drizzle it over your roast.
  5. Spread the bacon crumbles over your roast and dry onion soup mix.
  6. Cover roast and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or 4-6 hours on high.
  7. One hour before roast is to be served make your gravy.
  8. Lift roast out of crock pot and set aside.
  9. Add your one can of Cream of Celery soup and hand whisk until blended. For time's sake I use the electric mixer.
  10. Add flour as needed to thicken gravy while whisking.
  11. Place your roast back into the crock pot and finish out your cooking time.
  12. Serve your roast swimming in gravy in a white over sized bowl and watch their eyes light up!
