Pot Roast in Crock Pot:

This pot roast in crock pot recipe is super easy to make with a few surprise ingredients you wouldn't necessarily expect! This roast comes together with cocoa-cola soda, a dry onion soup mix, cream of mushroom soup, and a roast! It's super simple and easy to throw into a crock pot early in the morning, let it cook all day long, and it's tender perfection come evening when you're ready to eat! 

Vegetables to Cook with Pot Roast:

If you want to add some veggies to this meal and have them cook in the crock pot with your roast, you can definitely add in a quartered onion, some carrots, and golden potatoes. Those are my favorite veggies to cook alongside this meal. Yukon gold potatoes are in my humble opinion the very best potato to ever live. Everything else is just trash. Kidding, kind of.

The Best Crock Pot for Pot Roast:

I actually never cook this roast in a crock pot anymore. In fact, I gave my crock pot to the goodwill several years ago. Gasp, I know. I actually got an Instant Pot for my 30th birthday and have been using that for all my slow cooking needs ever since. I just set it to slow cook for 8 hours and forget about it. It does an amazing job cooking everything as a pressure cooker and a slow cooker. 

Instant Pot Instructions for Pot Roast:

If you're like me, you might forget at 8am that you meant to slow cook a roast for dinner for the entire day. Have no fear. If you have an instant pot you can cook this roast in under an hour. If you have a small 1-2lb roast cook it in the instant pot with all the ingredients mixed in on high pressure for 45 minutes. Let the steam naturally release when it's done cooking (don't do a quick release). If you have a larger roast cook it for 1 hour for 3lbs and 80 minutes for a 5lb roast.
