BBQ Pot Roast over Cheddar Ranch Grits


Growing up I was never a pot roast fan, but since starting this blog I have found several pot roast recipes that I really like.  Of all the recipes I've tried, this might be my favorite.  The roast was extremely tender and juicy, and the sauce was tangy and has a little zip to it.  I served this roast over some Cheddar Ranch Grits - OMG!  The grits were good enough to eat all on their own, but were incredible when combined with the roast.  This was SO good that I want to make it again next week - seriously!

2 Tbsp hot sauce
3 Tbsp cornstarch
1/4 cup milk

Sprinkle garlic salt and pepper over roast. Place roast in 6-quart slow cooker.  Combine coke, chili sauce, worcestershire and hot sauce; pour over roast. Cover and cook on high 5-6 hours or on low 8-9 hours.

Remove roast from slow cooker, reserving juices in slow cooker; keep roast warm.

Combine cornstarch and milk, stirring well; stir into slow cooker. Cook, uncovered on high 15 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Serve sauce over roast.

  2. What a fantastic neat idea to put ranch in grits. Have eaten them all my life and never had them other than plain, butter or cheese.

    That roast on them sends them over the top.

  7. I JUST made these grits to go with my leftover roast from last night. My grits dried up very quickly and I like them runny. I will make them again b/c the flavor was amazing! I will add much more broth next time! Thanks for the recipe.

  8. Suzanne - I do like my grits a little firmer. I am not a runny grits girl.

  11. Is chili sauce that red stuff that looks kind of like ketchup? Just want to make sure I am getting the right thing because this looks delicious!

    ReplyDelete

  14. Tried this last night and I thought it was awesome. The only thing I changed was to use veggie broth instead of chicken (so I could feed my vegetarian some grits.) Thanks for the great recipe!

  18. Is chili sauce "siracha"? Is it super spicy? Thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Taylor - no, it is a spicy ketchup. It is near the ketchup and cocktail sauce. It isn't very spicy at all.

  20. I immediately started drooling when I saw the pictures. Oh lordy, this MUST happen and SOON.

  21. I made this today & substituted a Diet Dr Pepper & didn't use hot sauce then shredded it up before adding it back to the gravy. Served on hoagie roll. It was super yummy! Thank you!

  26. Julie Thomson - I'd love for you to include this in your recipe round-up.

  27. I accidentally combined the milk and cornstarch with the rest of the ingredients. Hope it still turns out ok.... :?

  28. This was great but the ranch was way too much. I'll leave it out next time.

    ReplyDelete
  29. This dish was the hit of Thanksgiving! The cheddar ranch grits were amazing! And the roast was a hit with everyone, even folks who don't care for grits!

    I did have to use a little more liquid... the grits were a bit too thick. I don't like runny grits, but I do like them just firm enough to eat with a fork. An extra cup of broth about three minutes into the cooking did the trick.

    Wonderful recipe, I can't wait to make it again!

  30. Just made this for dinner and substituted venison for the beef. I also used 1tbl sriracha instead of traditional hot sauce. I also did not like the thick grits. Package directions calls for 1/4 cup grits to 1 cup of liquid. Otherwise it was wonderful!

  31. I made this on Sunday! DELICIOUS!
    Leftovers for later (yum).

    We're having a party at Tumbleweed Contessa - What'd You Do This Weekend? This would be a great hit.
    Hope you can bring it over.

  32. Made this today and it was incredible. I used fresh garlic cloves instead of the garlic salt because that's what I had. I also used Dr pepper instead of the coke and sriracha for the hot sauce . Man oh man was it incredible!! Will make again in the near future!! Being from Texas I'm picky about my meat and BBQ and this dish did the trick!! The entire family enjoyed it as well. Thanks for posting this.

  33. I made this last night and it was delicious. My son ate it but didn't really love the "gravy". I think because it was not the traditional beefy gravy. It was one of a few recipes I have found on Pinterest that actually came out just like the picture!! Thanks, will make it again.

    1. Did not like the gravy either, too much chili sauce, too tomato-y, too sweet. I understand the premise of having the "zip" or "zing" of these ingredients, but it's too much and needs something to balance it. The milk/cornstarch didn't neutralize it at all

  34. Hi Steph,
    I just went to the store to pick up the stuff to make this tomorrow! Hubs loves pot roast but I don't usually make it in the warmer months. With this one being "bbq" it is going to make a great meal that I'm sure he'll love.
