There are those days that I plan ahead for dinner (it’s not too often, but it happens). 😉 Do you have them? They are normally days that are completely filled with tasks/activities every waking minute. On those days, if I remember, I like to get dinner started that morning before the chaos begins. One of my family’s favorite meals is my 4 ingredient pot roast. It’s such a hearty, filling meal and with this recipe it only takes me a few minutes to get going.
Ingredients: pot roast, can of Coke, bottle of barbecue sauce, one packet of onion soup mix.
You just dump the barbecue sauce, Coke and onion soup into a crockpot and stir it together until it’s fully mixed. Then add the roast and set to low for about 8-10 hours. I suggest putting the roast in with the fat side up. The prep for this dish is 2 minutes top!
If I have time I like to take it out of the liquid and let it rest for about 10 minutes. Then I slice it and put it back into the juices until we are ready to eat.
To round out this meal I usually have some type of green veggie and mashed potatoes. I normally cheat on the mashed potatoes and use the pre-made version from the refrigerated section of the store. I also have a freezer version that I will share with you a little later! 😉
