This cola pot roast was made in my Cuisinart pressure cooker but I will also include Instant Pot instructions below.

Pressure Cooker Cola Pot Roast


1 14.5 ounce can stewed tomatoes
1 cup cola
1 cup beef broth
1 packet dry spaghetti sauce mix
1 chopped onion
2 stalks of celery, chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Black pepper
3 pounds chuck roast
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Carrots and potatoes, cut up


Season the outside of the roast on both sides with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Set your pressure cooker to brown and add oil. When hot, brown your chuck roast on both sides. Remove the roast and add onions and celery to the pot. Saute, veg, but you don’t have to. Add the tomatoes with their juice, cola, broth, and spaghetti sauce mix. Stir well until mix is dissolved.

Add the roast to the pressure cooker. Set the pressure cooker to high for 30 minutes. RELEASE PRESSURE MANUALLY. Add the carrots and potatoes, set the pressure cooker to high for 15 more minutes. RELEASE THE PRESSURE MANUALLY.


Season the roast liberally with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Add the oil and set the Instant Pot to sauté. When the oil is hot, brown your roast on both sides. You’ll know when each side is browned when it pulls easily from the stainless-steel pot. Remove the roast and set aside.

Add the onion and celery and sauté until softened, about 4 minutes, stirring often. Again, you don’t have to do this step, it’s personal preference.  Add the tomatoes with their juice, cola, broth, and spaghetti sauce mix. Stir well until mix is dissolved.

Add roast back to the pot, put the lid on, and set it to “Meat/Stew”, on high pressure for 30 minutes. Once finished, use the quick-release valve on the lid to force-depressurize the rest.  Add the carrots and potatoes and using the same “Meat/Stew” setting, set it for 15 minutes.  Use the quick-release valve to release pressure.

Serve with rice or mashed potatoes or grits and enjoy!
