  • Slow Cooker
  • Slotted Spoon
  • Peeler


  • 3 - 4 pound beef chuck roast
  • 8 ounces Pepsi or any can of pop
  • 1 package dry onion soup mix


  • Line or grease crock. Place roaast in baking dish, unseasoned.
  • Sprinkle with onion soup mix. Pour pop along sides of the roast leaving soup mix on the roast.
  • Cover and cook on low for 10 - 12 hours which is the preferred method. Roast is done when it is tender and can easily be shredded with a fork.


  • Carrots, onions, potatoes and mushrooms may be added to fill the crock up to 75% full.  These will be best added 5 to 7 hours before the roast will be eaten on low, but they can be added in the morning.
  • Roast can be cooked on high for 10 hours, but low is preferred when vegetables and potatoes are included.
  • I always defrost the roast before cooking to ensure food safety and the ability to cook long enough to make tender before dinnertime.
