Bacon & Cola Crock Pot Roast Beef

Pin It

I love double duty meals.  Make this great roast beef and serve with mashed potatoes night one.  Then take the left over beef and add a little bbq sauce and serve sandwiches night 2!   Such a time saver

You can make your own onion soup mix for this recipe. You can find the recipe here

    I made this over the weekend (with pork) and it was AMAZING. Leftovers became a ‘stroganoff’ with egg noodles because I couldn’t ruin the yummy sauce with bbq. 🙂

    This was a HUGE hit at our house!!!! YUM!!!!! The bacon is the secret weapon for sure. I measured my drippings becase it seemed like I had a lot in the pan and used 3T and there really wasn’t a lot more. Definately don’t skip out on the bacon.

    Husband and daughter loved the recipe as did I. It will now be our go-to roast recipe. I agree the bacon is what makes it. Very simple and very yummy!!!
