When I was younger, I remember celebrating a lot of the holidays with my Grandma. We would spend most weekends at her house while my mom worked, and so in addition to celebrating the actual holiday with my parents on the day of, my grandma always threw a second holiday celebration at her house for my brother and I as well. 

4 ingredient pot roast

A random fact about my grandma is that she was obsessed with bears. I remember she had a massive china closet in her living room filled with glass bear figurines that people had given to her throughout the years from their travels, and her own. I remember at some point, someone had given her two magnets for her refrigerator that had the Coca-Cola polar bears on them, and between her love of Diet Coke, and bears, she thought that it was the greatest gift ever. I remember those bears on her refrigerator as one of the many mental landmarks of my childhood. 

Now that I'm an adult, and recreating holiday meals to bring my own family and friends together, I try to cook things with the same passion and love that my grandmother did. When I found this roast recipe that was super simple to make, and even included Coca-Cola in the recipe I knew I had to make it, and then share it with you all. If this holiday season is one of your very firsts in terms of you cooking the meal on your own, this fool proof recipe is super easy, delicious, and will fill your home with love and full bellies this holiday season. 

Right now at Family Dollar you can purchase holiday themed Coca-Cola products with their iconic polar bears on them. I love that Family Dollar is a one stop shop for quality products at a great value.

(1) 2.5lb pot roast
1 dry onion soup packet
1 10oz can cream of mushroom soup
2lbs carrots
2lbs red potatoes

Pour the dry onion soup mix, cream of mushroom soup, and Coca-Cola into the bottom of your slow cooker, and mix together. Place the roast on top, and then fill the slow cooker to the top with the carrots and potatoes. Cook on low for 8 hours, and then serve. The meat should be super tender, and easily separate with a fork.
