The Roast Report

As I reported earlier, today I threw whatever I could find in the crock pot so I'd have a hot dinner.  To recap, here's what went into it:
  • 1 small can of Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 1 envelope of Lipton Onion Soup mix
  • 1 sirloin roast
  • 1 bottle of Michelob Original Lager
  • 1 can of Sierra Mist
  • 1 empty small can full of water
Around 1, I poked the roast a few times and felt that it was still pretty solid so I turned the dial up to Hi.  By the time 4:30 rolled around, I turned it to low and poured in three and a half cups of rice to cook in the juice.  Normally, I usually use a can of beef broth somewhere in the process and no Sierra Mist.  Privately, I was concerned with the flavor the lime flavored soda would impart to the meet.  Once the rice was done and most of the gravy was soaked up, I scooped myself a bowlful and had a taste...

... and it was delicious!  It wasn't on the edge of being too salty like it sometimes is.  The Sierra Mist gave the meat a subtle sweetness.  In short, it was the best thing I've made in the crock pot in a long time.


  1. Certainly sounds like an original recipe! I'm glad it worked out!

  2. Me too. I was going to have to eat it regardless.
