I found this recipe while browsing for roast recipes the other day. This delicious and EASY recipe had my family asking for THIRDS!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 -3 lbs top round roast
  • 1 (12 ounce) can cola (or cherry cola)
  • 4 -6 medium sized potatoes
  • 1 (1 1/4 ounce) package Lipton golden onion soup mix


  1. Pound the heck out of (or stab, as I did) the roast. Place unseasoned roast in deep baking dish.
  2. Quarter potatoes and place all around roast (do not peel).
  3. Sprinkle golden onion soup mix all over roast and potatoes.
  4. Add cola and cover loosely with foil.
  5. Bake at 300 degrees for 3-4 hours. Let sit 15 mins before slicing (against the grain). Spoon juices from pan over slices of beef.

Amazing! I used the regular 1oz. package of onion soup mix and cherry cola, it was great. I would recomend some salt and pepper, we added some at the table.

I prepared this exactly as written. It is in dire need of seasoning, something. As written it is boring at best. Since I wasn't making this to eat the same night, I had the luxury of tweaking it the next day. I added homemade roasted chili peppers (from a farmer's market) and reheated. Now it is very yummy and when served with warm tortillas it will certainly please my daughter and her boyfriend!
