We raise beef for a living, so pot roast is something that we have often and we really love it. I thought I had cooked pot roast about every way possible until I was looking through Emeril’s Sizzling Skillets and Other One-Pot Wonders. Low and behold there it was, Cola-Braised Pot Roast. I just had to try it.
Normally I do not cook the vegetables in with the roast but this was Emeril’s and so far every recipe from this cookbook has been really delicious, so I did it. The recipe called for parsnips, carrots, onions, and celery. Don’t laugh, but I didn’t even know what a parsnip looked like. I was thinking about turnips or rutabagas or something like that. Turns out they are like a white carrot, but I’m guessing you already knew that.
