“I was never a fan of pot roast, but I tried this recipe once because it was fast and easy. My husband says it was the best meal I ever made him, and we fought over leftovers!”
8hrs 10mins

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 -4 lbs roast (can use pork or beef, but I really liked the beef better)
  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup, any brand
  • 1 (1 ounce) package ranch dressing mix (some people use onion soup mix, I prefer Ranch)
  • Pepsi
  • 1 large onion (optional)
  • 2 -3 potatoes, quartered (optional)


  1. Place roast in the bottom of crock pot.
  2. If you are adding onions and/or potatoes, cut these now and place on top of the roast.
  3. Pour cream of mushroom soup over roast (and onions/potatoes).
  4. Sprinkle full pkg of ranch mix on top of the soup.
  5. Pour Pepsi over all. I use enough Pepsi to mostly cover all ingredients, and because it makes the best sauce/gravy I have ever tasted!
  6. Bake in crock pot all day, and enjoy a wonderful supper! If you want to start eating sooner, just cook on high.
