On a cold day there is nothing like comming home to a nice tender pot roast.  I have tried fixing it different ways and have tweeked many recipe ideas into my greatest pot roast recipe.  You can fix it in a crock pot and let it slow cook all day or slow simmer in a large pot.  Either way, fix some mash potatoes and some gravy and you have a plate of heaven.

1 boneless chuck roast (approximately 3 to 4 pounds)
1/2 cup of flour
salt and pepper
ground thyme
1 can of coke or pepsi
1 medium onion sliced
6 carrots peeled left whole
Dredge the chuck roast in flour.  Heat oil in large soup pot or dutch oven.  Brown meat on both sides.  Sprinkle with salt, pepper, thyme and rosemary.  Place in crock pot or back in the dutch oven.   Add onions, carrots and the can ok coke.  Let crock pot cook all day or simmer in dutch oven about 4 hours until the meat is very tender. 
After removing the roast, carrots and onions pour the remaining liquid into small pot.  I like to remove the fat with a gravy seperator at this point.  In a glass add about 3 tablespoons of flour and mix with hot water and stir until flour is disolved.  Bring the liquid to boil and add the flour mixture and stir until it gets thick.  Add some salt and pepper if desired.  Pour over the meat and mashed potatoes and you have a dinner on a cold night from heaven, CHEERS !!
