Coca Cola Roast Beef

It was time to bring out the crock pot when dangerously cold wind chills keeping everyone tucked into their warm homes.  I happened to have a chuck roast that I wanted to try to do something new with so yesterday was a good opportunity to do so.

Coca Cola Roast Beef

1 - 3+ pound chuck roast
1 cup beef broth
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 can (12 oz) warm Coca Cola
1 large garlic clove, smashed
1/4 cup onions, minced
1 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Place the roast in your crock pot.  Add in beef broth mixed together with the tomato paste, Coca Cola and smashed garlic clove.  Sprinkle the minced onion and seasonings on top of the roast.  Cover and cook on medium low for 8 hours.  

It makes a great gravy too!
