Easy BBQ Pot Roast Made with Coca-Cola

This Coca-Cola Pot Roast is a new favorite at our house. I made this pot roast for a football party and it was a huge hit. I immediately renamed the recipe Tailgate Pot Roast! Beef roast slow cooked in chili sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and Coke. SO good! It’s like a tangy homemade BBQ sauce. YUM! Perfect for feeding a hungry crowd.

How to Make Coca-Cola Pot Roast in the Slow Cooker

This pot roast is super easy to make. Heat some oil in a skillet and quickly sear the roast on all sides. Place the roast in the slow cooker. Add chili sauce, Coca-Cola, onion, and Worcestershire sauce to the crockpot. Cover and cook on LOW until the roast is fall-apart tender. Shred the meat with two forks and serve.

  • What kind of roast do you use for pot roast? The most popular cut to use is a Chuck roast. You can also use a blade roast or rump roast.
  • Do I need to pan sear the roast before adding it to the slow cooker? I like to pan-sear the roast for a few minutes on all sides before adding it to the slow cooker, but it isn’t necessary.
  • I used Heinz Chili Sauce that is near the ketchup. It is basically zesty ketchup.
  • I use regular Coke, not Diet Coke. I think you need the sugar in the Coke to make the sauce taste great.
  • Can you freeze Coca-Cola Pot Roast? Yes! You can freeze leftover pot roast for a quick meal later.
  • Can I cook pot roast on HIGH in the slow cooker? Yes! You can cook the pot roast on HIGH for 4 to 6 hours.

What to Serve with Pot Roast

I served the pot roast on top of slider buns. I just let everyone grab a bun and serve themselves right out of the slow cooker. SO easy! Feel free to top the sliders with pickles and mustard. This roast is great for any meal, not just parties and tailgating. We’ve made this for dinner and served it over mashed potatoes or cheesy grits. YUM! The leftovers taste great!
