December Cooking Challenge #4 and #5

Crock Pot Roast

1 sirloin tip roast or boneless chuck roast
1 can Coca Cola
1 med. cut up onion
15 oz. can sm. whole potatoes
15 oz. can carrots or sliced carrots
4 oz. can chopped mushrooms

Wash meat and place in crock pot; add onion and Coke and salt and pepper to taste. Cook on high for 6-8 hours. In last hour, add potatoes, carrots, and mushrooms and let entire meal cook at least another hour. Meat should fall apart. If you want to cook it on low, it will take around 12 hours.


I didn't add the potatoes, carrots or mushrooms. Instead, I made Dirty Mashed Potatoes. The roast was very tender. I enjoyed it ... Gord needed to add salt (I hadn't added any to the crockpot).

Plus I made Lemon Poppyseed Bread with my breadmaker, which was very delicious!

Lemon Poppy Seed Bread

1-1/4 cups water
2 tablespoons powdered milk
2 tablespoons shortening
1 teaspoon sugar
1 1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 teaspoon lemon juice
3 cups white flour
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1 tablespoon poppy seed
3/4 teaspoon bread machine yeast
