Recipes: Cola Pot Roast

See also

There are so many unique ways in which to use cola. My dad taught me how to clean the car’s battery connections by pouring cola directly onto them. He thought that would deter me from wanting to drink Cokes, but not so much.

Two of my favorite uses of cola, however, are for coke floats and for the chocolate-cola hot fudge cake some restaurants serve warm with vanilla ice cream. Yum, yum!

Along that line, today’s recipe is for a cola pot roast. This recipe will serve 8.

Ingredients:

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
  • 1 cup cola-flavored carbonated beverage
  • 1 packet dry spaghetti sauce mix
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • ¾ cup chopped celery
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • 3 pounds beef chuck roast
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, break up tomatoes in their juice.
  2. Stir in cola, spaghetti sauce mix, onion, celery, salt, and garlic salt. Stir until spaghetti sauce mix is dissolved.
  3. In a Dutch oven, over medium high heat, brown meat in oil about 10 minutes on each side. Drain off all fat.
  4. Pour tomato mixture over meat. Cover, and reduce heat to low.
  5. Simmer slowly for about 2 1/2 hours, or until meat is tender.
