I did this recipe the other night ... I didn't add the cream of mushroom soup (my kids don't care for it).

 

I put the roast in ... poured the coke over the meat and then sprinkled the onion soup mix over that and cooked on low for 7 hours. It was yummy and the kids loved it!!!!!

Instead of the mushroom soup try adding a bottle of chili sauce with the rest of the ingredients. It is wonderful!!!!

I want to know too, does the coke make it sort of a BBQ? Is there a sweet taste? smile.gif

No, it doesn't taste like bbq at all... with the added onions it just makes a very nice thinner gravy after cooking 8 hours. The next time I make this I'm going to add some tomatoes so the gravy is a little thicker. I may even try cherry coke!!

Medb48, I would think this would B.Q up if you would put just a diet coke and ketchup over the roast like you do Chicken or pork chops on the stove. I like the sound of chili sauce too! Thanks for some great ideas ya`ll. Donna

Hi all, wave.gif

 

This one sounds fabulous, especially with the chili sauce! It's a definite on the weekend menu here! There'll be plenty left to freeze for our portioned-container meals for work, too! :D

 

Many thanks,

I'm surprised diet coke works because I thought aspertame breaks down with heat. Has anyone tried it both ways, with diet and regular coke? If so, is there a difference in the results? I've been hesitant to try this with diet coke, but would obviously rather save the calories.


It's time to try defying gravity!

I think I'll try defying gravity!

SusieKew, I'm planning to try it with Diet RC, which is sweetened with Splenda instead of aspartame. I avoid aspartame anyhow, but, like you, I've also heard that heat breaks it down.

 

There may be other diet colas sweetened with Splenda, as well, but I know Diet RC is.

I made this with caffeine free Diet Coke last night and it was EXCELLENT! The sauce was absolutely wodnerful - no aftertaste or anything like that. I don't know what's supposed to happen when/if aspertame breaks down, but I have no complaints about this one.

 

The only thing is, the points seemed a little low to me. I keep reading that the roast should be about 5 pts/2oz and if this is a 3-4# roast with 8 servings - that would be like 6-8oz/serving - which would make 15-20 points/serving just for the meat...or am I WAY off base in figuring this one :confused:

Made it with Diet Rite (which is sweetened with splenda, not aspartame), thought it was mediocre. We'll eat the leftovers, but I doubt I'll make it again.
