The soda really marinates and tenderizes the roast – this has a special flavor, one you’ll find yourself craving ! Pictures of pot roast never do it justice. Believe me, no matter how it looks, you want to make this one because it tastes just great.

Pot Roast is just a special dish – it is so homey and so inviting. I love the way the meat gets so super, super tender. If you don’t have a pressure cooker, you can cook this stove top in Dutch Oven for 2 hours at a low simmer. But if you have a pressure cooker, then definitely try this recipe in there – the pressure cooker method adds even more flavor to an already fantastic dish.
