Dr. Pepper Roast, Oh My!!!


Last week a Facebook friend posted about making a Dr. Pepper Roast for her hubby’s Birthday celebration! I was intrigued and decided I should do so!  We had purchased and excellent bargain at a local grocer, $1.69 lb. for a HUGE Pork section.  I had a 5 lb. section set aside for a special meal, hubby cut up maybe 3 lb. for an upcoming Outback Stew, still 2 2.5-3 lb. roasts to be creative with in freezer.  I had most ingredients to throw this awesome meal together, so just got a couple things.


5 lb. roast

3.5 c. Dr. Pepper

1 15oz. Can Tomato sauce

3 fat carrots, thickly sliced

1 yellow onion, julienned 

No Salt & Pepper, to taste

Sprinkle top with dried Parsley

I assembled all of the above in my Slow Cooker, let cook all day, and couldn’t get it out of my mind all day. When I got home, carrots were still too firm for our liking so I cooked 1.5-2 hours more but on Hi after turning roast & reserving 2-2.25 c. liquid for gravy making.  Then I also prepared rice with both water & liquid from roast.  What a feast fit for a King & Queen.  Little effort.  Little out of pocket expense.  Big flavor.  Big enjoyment.  Great health benefits.
