Coca-Cola Braised Roast Beef
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 5
  • 3 pounds chuck roast (or a similar cut of beef)
  • 3 stalks celery, sliced thinly
  • 1 onion, sliced thinly (I used two because mine were super tiny)
  • 3 carrots, sliced thinly
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced thinly
  • 1 can regular Coca-Cola
  • ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon ground mustard
  • 10 slices bread of your choice (to make 5 sandwiches)
  • 10 slices Swiss cheese (or whatever cheese your prefer)
  1. Spray your crock pot with non-stick cooking spray. Add in the sliced vegetables, then the beef, then the rest of the ingredients (except for the bread and cheese, of course). Mix everything up and turn your crock pot on low for 6-7 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.
  2. When the meat is ready, remove from the pot with tongs and place on a cutting board. Strain the juices from the vegetables and set aside. Slice or shred the beef (whichever is your preference) and add some juices if needed (I added about 2 or 3 tablespoons of juices to the meat before plating the sandwiches).
  3. Lay two slices of Swiss or other cheese on one slice of bread, followed by the beef, then the vegetables, then the top slice of bread (add some more juices if you like or serve on the side for dipping). Makes 5 sandwiches.
