Slow Cooker Cola Roast with Sweet Potatoes


2.5 pound beef roast
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
2 cans (12 ounces each) cola
2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 ½ inch pieces
2 medium onions, cut into eighths
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
2 Tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
2 Tablespoon pecans, coarsely chopped
½ teaspoon dried sage leaves
1 bag Distinctively Dole Salad


Place roast in a greased 4-5 quart slow cooker. Sprinkle with onion soup mix. Pour soda over the meat in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on low heat 7-8 hours or on high heat 4 hours. DO NOT USE DIET COLA in this recipe!

Heat oven to 450 degrees. Place sweet potatoes and onions in a 9x13 inch pan, drizzle with butter and toss to coat. Bake uncovered 25-30 minutes, stirring once, until almost tender. Stir in brown sugar, pecans and sage. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until coated and tender.

Prepare salad according to package directions and serve with Cola Roast.
