Recipe by SarasotaCook
READY IN: 6hrs 20mins


  • Roast
  • 1
    (3 1/2-4 1/2 lb) beef 7-bone roast
  • 14
    cup flour
  • 2
    tablespoons olive oil
  • Sauce
  • 1
    cup Coca-Cola (no diet and no pepsi)
  • 1
    cup beef broth (low salt)
  • 1
    (1 1/4 ounce) package dry onion soup mix
  • 1
    tablespoon sweet paprika
  • 2
    teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1
    tablespoon minced garlic
  • 12
    teaspoon black pepper (you can add more pepper at the end of cooking)
  • Vegetables
  • 1
    lb red potatoes (I like the small ones, skins on)
  • 12
    lb carrot, peeled and cut in 2-inch pieces (thick carrots I cut lengthwise too. You want all the carrots to cook evenly at the same time, so mak)
  • 2
    parsnips, peeled and cut in 2-inch pieces (cut the same as the carrots)
  • 1
    large onion, rough chopped (not too small of pieces or they will fall apart)
  • 8
    ounces cremini mushrooms (white or button can be substituted, leave them whole or larger ones you can cut in half)
  • 13
    cup fresh parsley, fine chopped (added at the end of cooking)


  • Roast -- This to me is an important step. Season the meat well with a mix of the flour, salt and pepper. Rub it in well on all sides of the meat. Then in a large pan add the oil and heat to medium high. Sear the meat on all sides until you get a nice crust and it begins to brown. Just a minute per side is all you need. This really helps the flavor in this dish. Then add your meat to the crock pot.
  • Crockpot -- Add all the vegetables around your roast. I like to put the carrots, parsnips towards the bottom, then the potatoes and mushrooms, and last, add the onions over the top of the roast.
  • Sauce -- Mix everything together in a small bowl and pour over the meat and vegetables. Turn your crockpot on low and cook 6-8 hours. Mine was tender in 6, but it really depends on whether you have a round or oval pot, and the newer models tend to cook a bit hotter. So, you know your crockpot best. Before serving, check if you want to add any additional pepper and add in the fresh parsley.
  • Serve -- Remove the roast and vegetables and make sure to let the roast set 15 minutes before slicing. Serve with the gravy on the side. ENJOY!
