Using a combination of coke and chicken stock/broth gives a great flavor.

Or some red wine.
Sprinkle the roast with all kinds of herbs after browning.

Pot Roast with Pepsi or Coke

This is the "best tasting" roast I've ever had.
The gravy was, "out of this world".

3-4 lb. roast (almost any kind will do, but I've always used pork)
1-(12 ounce) can Pepsi or Coke
1-(10-3/4 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
1-(1 ounce) package dry onion soup mix
1 teaspoon minced garlic, optional (I always add it)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Place roast in a roasting pan that can be covered tightly.
Pour Pepsi or Coke over the roast.
In a bowl, mix soups and garlic together.
Spread evenly over the roast.
Cover tightly.
Bake for 3-4 hours at 325 degrees.
Serves 4-5.
"ENJOY"!

I'm sorry to revive this topic but I've been really craving pot roast lately (because of the weather etc.). Unfortunately I've run into the problem that I don't have my dutch oven with me (or any other pot I can put in an oven). I've consulted some friends and they've told me to use foil to make a pouch to braise the roast in (they got the idea from alton brown). I've braised before in foil pouches but never a cut of meat as big as a chuck roast. Any suggestions?

You use a pork roast for this, Domestic? How intriguing!

What cut? I need something different and this fits the bill.

I always use burgandy and sometimes a few Juniper berries in pot roast. Plus most of the other standard fare. However I do not cook potatoes and carrots with the roast...we enjoy those oven roasted...finished on top in butter/margarine...

Do you have a skillet you can put in the oven? You could sear your pot roast in that, then add liquid and cover tightly with heavy-weight foil.

You might also try using one of those plastic cooking bags. Sear your roast first, then put in the bag, then into your skillet and pop in the oven. I can assure you that you'll get a tender roast that way.

Where there's a will, there's a way.
