  1. 4 pounds beef sirloin roast

  2. 3 carrots, chopped

  3. 3 stalks celery, chopped

  4. 1 clove garlic, minced

  5. 1/2 (.75 ounce) packet dry brown gravy mix

  6. 2 tablespoons water

  7. 1 (1 ounce) package dry onion soup mix

  8. 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup

  9. 10 fluid ounces cola-flavored carbonated beverage


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Place meat in a roasting pan. Sprinkle carrots, celery and minced garlic around roast.

  3. In a small bowl, combine the brown gravy mix and water, mixing into a smooth paste. Add onion soup mix, cream of mushroom soup and cola-flavored carbonated beverage. Pour over the roast.

  4. Cover pan, and cook 1 hour in the preheated oven.
