Lick Your Plate Clean Crockpot Pot Roast


No pre-browning, and only 1-2 minutes to get this lick your plate clean,  5 ingredient dinner going in the morning!
It makes a delicious and rich, thick gravy with the pot roast!
Don't let the surprise ingredient of Ginger ale throw you off! I happen to use diet since my husband is diabetic.
This recipe came from a  local church cookbook, and I knew I had to try it as soon as a saw it.

Jan's Tip: double the "Gravy" ingredients, (all the ingredients other than the roast) Years ago I started doing this and find it is the perfect amount of gravy for my family.

  2. May be a dumb question, but do you salt & pepper the roast as usual, & are you using self-rising or all purpose flour? Sounds delish.

    1. Great questions! I use regular flour. You can season the roast before cooking anyway you like best, it'll turn out yummo. I used to use salt and pepper before cooking it, but am playing around with less salt in my cooking and letting family add their own at time of serving. It is not easy to stop salting all my cooking!
      Thanks!

    1. Those sound like great additions! I'd put the Veggies in the crockpot first and the meat on top, but sounds great!

    1. Thanks Alli! I've only tried this one time, but I doubled the flour, gravy packet and gingerale and it worked out great. So I think that should work for you. (I did not double the onion soup mix).
      If you do try that, I'd love to hear a review from you on whether it worked for you or not!

  5. Is the recipe the same if the roast is frozen? Or does it need to thaw out before putting it in the crock pot?

    1. The cooking time is what changes in the recipe if it is frozen. It'll take alot longer in the crockpot from frozen. Not sure on the time change though, but I assume several more hours.
      Hope that helps

  8. Have you ever tried beer instead of ginger ale? I have been wanting to try it but I was not sure if the sugar in the soda helped to make it as tender?

    1. Unfortunately, I do not drink or even cook with alcohol at all, so I have no experience with this. I did some research for you, and found this link: http://www.wikihow.com/Tenderize-Meat-with-Beer. I hope it helps!

  9. I'd really like to try to make this, but I'm only seeing the recipe for the Onion Soup mix. I have the picture with the ingredients, but would like to know the amounts and the rest of the recipe. Thanks!
