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!

This pot roast is super easy to make. Place the pot roast in the slow cooker. Whisk together a can of coke, chili sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce. Pour over the roast and cook on LOW all day. About 15 minutes before serving, prepare the grits. Bring quick cook grits and chicken broth to a boil. Reduce heat and add Ranch mix and cheese. Serve the pot roast and all that yummy sauce on top of the grits.

  3. gurrrrrl – this is a slow cooker slap FULL of ridonculousness. such a winner of a recipe! thanks for sharing. my family absolutely loved it.

  4. 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!

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