 Slow Cooker Dr. Pepper & BBQ Roast Beef }
#SundaySupper #ProgressiveDinner‏

Sunday is probably my favorite day of the week. It's relaxing, full of family time, and just plain nice.

Our Sundays usually consist of:
Sleeping in a little, (anything past 7am is sleeping in for me haha)
Going to Church, (hubby's aunt in the preacher, so that equals extra family time)
Going to Lunch or Coming home and fixing lunch,
Activities in town (Movies, frozen yogurt, shopping, or walks,etc)
Recipe Testing,
Afternoon Naps,
TV Time or A Movie.

Well, it's not the most exciting day but It's my favorite.

So what  makes this relaxing day even more relaxing? My SlowCooker doing all the work for dinner.

Sunday is the only day of the week when I know for a fact that we will be able to enjoy a nice dinner with no stress of a time crunch, which normal means I can try a new recipe, or make something that has a few more steps than normal. But I'm OK with the SlowCooker taking some of the work :) Especially when it's cold outside. That's my favorite time to use my SlowCooker.

So Today, while I'm out enjoying my favorite day of the week, I want to share Slow Cooker Dr. Pepper & BBQ Roast Beef with you.

When we make this,  we served it in thick slices.  I'm sure you could do thinner slices for sandwiches and such. But we like it thick sliced.

I'm also sharing this recipe with  #SundaySupper #ProgressiveDinner‏ on twitter.

Slow Cooker Dr. Pepper & BBQ Roast Beef

What you need:

1 Beef Roast
1 Bottle of BBQ Sauce (I used Country Bobs)
1 Can Diet Dr. Pepper (I'm sure you can use regular, we just buy diet, so it's what I had)

What to do:

Turn the Slow Cooker onto low.

Pour in a little bit of the BBQ sauce to cover the bottom of the slow cooker pot. 

Place the roast into the slow cooker and cover with the rest of the BBQ sauce. 

Pour in the Diet Dr. Pepper. 

Cover and let cook on low for about 4 hours. 
(If you want it to be more of a medium, cook the roast less, but if you want it even more well done, cook it a little longer)
