Dr. Pepper Roast (Crockpot Recipe)

I love Dr. Pepper. For many years it was my favorite soda (recently I’ve been leaning more toward Cherry Coke, but Dr. Pepper will always be my first soda love) so naturally the thought of incorporating it into dinner seemed genius to me.

I adapted this recipe from Deep South Dish.


  • 2-3lb beef roast
  • 2 cans of Dr. Pepper
  • 1 packet of beefy onion soup mix.


  1. Throw everything in the crockpot and cook for 8 hours on low.

Verdict: Win

This roast came out quite tasty. The Dr. Pepper added a nice sweetness that made it stand out from other pot roast ideas I’ve tried. Even the anti-pot-roast member of the family liked it. I will probably make it again and may experiment with other soda flavors as well.
