I was never a fan of pot roast, but I tried this recipe once because it was fast and easy. My husband says it was the best meal I ever made him, and we fought over leftovers!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 -4 lbs roast (can use pork or beef, but I really liked the beef better)
  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup, any brand
  • 1 (1 ounce) package ranch dressing mix (some people use onion soup mix, I prefer Ranch)
  • Pepsi
  • 1 large onion (optional)
  • 2 -3 potatoes, quartered (optional)


  1. Place roast in the bottom of crock pot.
  2. If you are adding onions and/or potatoes, cut these now and place on top of the roast.
  3. Pour cream of mushroom soup over roast (and onions/potatoes).
  4. Sprinkle full pkg of ranch mix on top of the soup.
  5. Pour Pepsi over all. I use enough Pepsi to mostly cover all ingredients, and because it makes the best sauce/gravy I have ever tasted!
  6. Bake in crock pot all day, and enjoy a wonderful supper! If you want to start eating sooner, just cook on high.

We loved this pot roast! I used a bottom round roast, golden mushroom soup, and a large onion. The Pepsi I poured in until there was about an inch or so in the bottom of the dish. Left the potatoes out because I made mashed potatoes. Didnt make this in the crock pot because I didnt plan correctly. Baked in the oven at 350 degrees for about 2 1/2 hours. I covered with foil until the last half hour so the roast could brown. The roast was moist and tender, very nice flavor and the pan drippings I thickened with some flour and water. Very good gravy!! Will be making this pot roast again!

Really good. I used a pork roast and opted for the Ranch dressing mix. The entire family loved it. I will be making this again sometime soon!
