I know that I have been MIA for a bit….had a terrible cold and work was CRAZY!!!!!  I have also been doing some things around the house that I will post pictures of as soon as I am finished.  Anyway, I made a very delicious pot roast for dinner last night and thought I would share this amazing one pot meal with you.


4lb bottom roast

1 large onion, sliced

8 oz sliced mushrooms

4-6 red potatoes, cut up

1 small bag of baby carrots

1 bottle of chili sauce

1 can cola

1 envelope onion soup mix


1 cup red wine

salt and pepper

vegetable oil

Season your roast with salt and pepper and brown in oil on all sides in a heavy pot.  I use my Le Creuset.

Remove roast to a plate and saute onions and mushrooms in pot until onions are soft and lightly browned.

Return roast to pot, add chili sauce, cola, onion soup mix, wine and i fill the empty chili sauce bottle with water and that is the amount of water I use.  It also allows you to get all the chili sauce out!

Bring it up to a simmer, cover and let cook for 3 hours.

At this time I add my carrots and about 30 minutes later my cut up potatoes.

It does take a lot of time, but I find it comes out much better in the pot than in my slow cooker.

You can even cook it in a low oven.

The meat is super soft and the sauce is absolutely wonderful!!!!!  It is even better the next day!!!!!!

Serve with dinner rolls to sop up the gravy!
