Crockpot Pop Roast

I had always made roast with just water and onion soup mix until we went to Iowa for our annual Hattermann family reunion at Chris' Grandma's and she had made this oh so delicious and tender roast with 7-Up!  She said she has used both coke and 7-Up, but if you use 7-Up you get the normal colored gravy whereas if you cook the roast with coke the gravy turns out very dark.  Depends on if you are picky about what your gravy looks like I guess, but the taste is delicious.  I made ths and brought it out to the guys in the field for supper while combining and everyone told me that it was really tender and good.  The next day I made the Crockpot BBQ Beef with the leftovers and that turned out great also.  Sadly I only took one photo while it was in the crockpot and it turned out blurry.

Crockpot Pop Roast

1 or 2 roasts, any kind
1 envelope onion soup mix or 1/4 cup Homemade Dry Onion Soup Mix
1 can pop - coke, 7-up, cherry coke, sprite

If roasts are thawed slow cook all day long on low in a crockpot large enough to hold your roasts.  If they are frozen, cook all day on high in crockpot and turn down to low if needed after about 5 or 6 hours.

When I say all day - I mean about 9am to 5:30pm.  The roast should be so tender after cooking like this all day that you can just lift out large chunks and shred them with a fork to serve.  Use leftovers to make the Crockpot BBQ Beef.
