My Son’s Favorite Meal: Pepsi Pot Roast

This is my son Travis and he loves Pepsi Pot Roast.  He had a Language assignment at school which required us to choose one of our favorite family recipes that included vegetables, so he chose Pepsi Pot Roast.  The following content is actually his 7th grade Language assignment – enjoy!

Pepsi Pot Roast by Travis

In order to make this recipe you will need a medium or large crockpot, a 3 lb. pot roast, two 10 ¾ oz. fat free low sodium cans of mushroom soup, 1 envelope of dry onion soup mix, and 32 oz. of Diet Coke or Coke Zero.  Once you are ready to make the Pepsi Pot Roast, you will need to place the pot roast in the crockpot.  Mix the mushroom soup, dry onion soup mix, and the Diet Coke together in a large bowl then pour the mix in the crockpot over the pot roast.  Put the cover on the crockpot and cook on high for six hours.

This recipe is very special to my family in many ways.  We eat it almost every time it gets cold outside, which in Texas isn’t very often.  The roast is soft and chewy with gravy covering its’ surface.  When it comes out of the crockpot it is so fresh that it lets off steam like water vapor gushing out of a geyser.  Its’ succulent taste dances around in your mouth just looking at the plate waiting for everyone to gather.  The bread on the bottom drenched in gravy is just waiting to flow off your fork and find its way to your mouth.  Our family signature potatoes tumble around the rim of the plate knocking into the carrots that melt away in your mouth giving away that little bit of gravy that just makes your mouth water.  This recipe makes a very healthy meal with its’ vegetables, and low fat contents.  Pepsi Pot Roast is easy to cook, but it takes a long time.  We don’t usually eat pot roast, so when we do, we eat it slowly and enjoy our favorite cold weather recipe.  My mom loves to serve left overs with rice – enjoy!
