Coca Cola Roast

2004-10-03

An interesting cooking angle to get a better gravy with the older Cajun women when cooking a meat dish was to caramelize sugar after browning the meat. Some cooks actually do this as the first step. Caramelizing sugar result is a tasty, brownish syrup which is used to coat the meat and be the basis of the gravy when mixed with the meat drippings. You can also buy prepared caramelized sugar marketed as Classic Caramel Color to darken your gravies or gumbo. The coca cola use in this recipe has the similar effect and result.

Ingredients

  • 2 - 3 pounds beef roast
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper and cayenne to taste or your favorite Cajun Seasoning
  • 2 - 4 tbsp flour
  • 4 tbsp oil or fat
  • 1 can Coca Cola

Directions

Step 1

Season the roast with salt and pepper or your favorite Cajun seasoning. Flour the roast on all sides.

Step 2

In a medium roaster, brown the roast on all sides in the fat/oil. When browned, drain the fat off.

Step 3

Pour the Coca Cola over the roast and place in a 325 degree oven. Cook for approximately 2 1/2 to 3 hours depending on desired tenderness. Sliced onions may be added as an option in the last 30 minutes of cooking. If extra liquid is needed add desired water for gravy thickness.

Step 4

Let stand 15 minutes before carving.
