Cola Pot Roast I

"Do not be intimidated by the time it takes to prepare a good pot roast. After you get it simmering, it requires little attention. For a busy weekday meal, make it the night before, and simply reheat the next day. It will taste even better. Thicken drippings as desired to make gravy."

  1. In a large bowl, break up tomatoes in their juice. Stir in cola, spaghetti sauce mix, onion, celery, salt, and garlic salt. Stir until spaghetti sauce mix is dissolved.
  2. In a Dutch oven, over medium high heat, brown meat in oil about 10 minutes on each side. Drain off all fat. Pour tomato mixture over meat. Cover, and reduce heat to low. Simmer slowly for about 2 1/2 hours, or until meat is tender.
