A delicious recipe for Dr Pepper Roast Beef cooked in a slow cooker. Perfect for busy weeknight suppers.

Okay, before I go any further, I have to tell you that this Dr Pepper Roast Beef is by far one of the best slow cooker roast beef recipe that I have ever had.

Hands down.

I didn’t add any potatoes or carrots to this recipe. I wanted just the meat so that I could easily use any leftovers in sandwiches or other dishes later in the week. {There’s a great one coming tomorrow, so be sure to come back for it.}

I also want to tell you that my love for Coca-Cola has not faded. It’s a Georgia born and bred drink and I can’t stay away from it for long. But, Dr Pepper just adds something special to this slow cooker roast recipe.

Oh my stars does it ever.

I love putting everything in the slow cooker and heading off for my day of activities without having to worry about what we’re having for supper.

I need all the help I can get for having supper ready after a busy day.

Coming home from late football practice and now adding games to the schedule leaves me with few nights that I can leisurely cook supper – if I ever could during the week. These are the nights I am more thankful than ever for my slow cooker.

And this Dr Pepper Slow Cooker Roast Beef.

And early bedtimes.

And my DVR.

But we’ll just talk about the roast for now.

Here’s my recipe for Dr Pepper Slow Cooker Roast Beef. I think you’ll love it.

  1. I’m just a beginner, and just wanted to ask a couple questions. Do you trim the fat off the roast beforehand?

    Also, I know that a lot of roast recipes have you sear the meat first, and then slow cook. Do I have to do this or is it just as simple as the recipe states?

    1. Hi Brian,
      I don’t trim the fat from my roast when I cook them. By slow cooking the meat, you’ll render the fat from the meat giving you a very delicious, flavorful jus. I do not sear my roasts first before I slow cook them. I just toss it all into my slow cooker, set the timer and go.

      Good luck! Hope you love it!

    the aroma smells so good im making this roast beef dish for my family tonight I know they are going to love it thanks…its so quick and easy

  3. My roast is frozen. Should I let it defrost or just cook it longer in the crock pot? My family loves beef and dr.pepper. I’m excited to try this one.

  4. What a delightful site!
    So I can’t wait to try this one, but I am wondering if I don’t have a crock pot how long would I roast it in oven, can I achieve the same results?

  5. 4 stars

    I wanted to try something a little different and I came across this recipe so i thought i would give it a try. I added a few ingredients such as onion, celery, carrots, green pepper, but this recipe was missing something. Next time I will add beef broth to give it flavor. Turned out good with the pop. Thanks for the idea, i will cook beef a little more in my household…

  6. 5 stars
    I didn’t have time to do it in the crock pot, so I cooked it on 300F for 3 hours in an oven-safe Dutch oven. I did not add the water, but gave it a splash of Balsamic vinegar. Very easy, and VERY yummy. Think this will by my go-to pot roast from now on. (Being from the South, I wonder how it would be with Coke instead of Dr. Pepper.) If you are inclined, you could also reduce the juice and thicken with a little cornstarch while the meat is resting. THUMBS UP!

  7. Will this also works on boneless chicken breast? I would love to try it tonight with chicken breast 🙂
