SLOW COOKER DR.PEPPER ROAST

Slow Cooker Dr. Pepper Roast :: Butter With A Side of Bread


There’s nothing better than a tender, flavorful roast for dinner on a Sunday. I had a recipe idea Saturday night and by Sunday morning, I was up and getting it started. It tasted AMAZING. Seriously people, it was so good. I used the leftover juices in the crockpot to make the gravy and it was heaven! I was inspired by my Pork Carnitas recipe here– Dr.Pepper is a lovely meat tenderizer and the flavor it adds is delicious.

Slow Cooker Dr. Pepper Roast

  • 1- 3lb beef chuck roast*
  • 2 cups Dr. Pepper soda
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 packet dry Onion Soup Mix
  • 1 TBSP Worcestershire sauce

Set Slow Cooker on high while you prep the food. I use a 7-quart slow cooker, but anything 5 quart and above would work well for this recipe.

Put your roast in the slow cooker. Combine all other ingredients and stir gently to combine. Pour over the top of the roast. Place the lid on the slow cooker and reduce temperature to LOW.

Cook on LOW for about 8 hours. Increase temperature to HIGH and cook an additional 2 hours. {I’ve heard wonderful things about slow cooking roasts on Low for 14-16 hours while you sleep. I’m trying it this way next!!)

When roast is done, pull out of slow cooker and shred meat, discarding any gristle.

Use a ladle and a small strainer to use some of the juices in the slow cooker to make a gravy. I strained about 1 cup of liquid, then in a separate bowl, put 1 TBSP of cornstarch and 2 TBSP of liquid together. Stir until combined, then add the cornstarch mixture to the remaining cup of strained liquid. Whisk together. Microwave for about 1 minute, stopping at 30 seconds to whisk again. Gravy should be thickened. Ladle some over the meat to serve.

*I used a roast I purchased from Zaycon Foods. Delicious! I love their high quality meats- especially that I can get them at a discount! Check out how Zaycon offers such low prices on high quality foods here.
