Bacon & Cola Crock Pot Roast Beef
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

Definitely want to try this one.
Can you throw the roast into the crock pot frozen or should you thaw it first?
u can throw it in frozen. lots of recipes call for u to brown it first but i never do…it always tastes good to me!
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. 🙂
Trying to cut calories..can u use diet cola, turkey bacon?
Yes you can.
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!!!
