This was a pretty good recipe, it definitely needed some salt and pepper. Besides that it was very tender. I put mine in the crockpot on low for 6 1/2 hours and on high for 2 hours. My girls wouldn't eat it, but I have yet to find a roast that they will eat. Overall pretty good, unfortunately I will not be making it again due to the girls not eating it.

YUM!!! This is by far the best pot roast that I have ever had. The roast came out tender and sooo delicious. I didn't find it sweet at all, which was honestly my fear, and I didn't need any cornstarch; it made a fabulous gravy all on its own (and I'm not a gravy fan.) Thanks!! This is the only pot roast recipe I will use from now on!

Outstanding! I used a pork roast, and cooked it in the oven. I agree with Shari2 that in the oven I would double the gravy ingredients. I could not believe I was out of cream of mushroom soup and had to use cream of chicken instead. I am so pleased with the results I think I will do it that way ALL the time. I added some quartered red potatoes and a package of baby carrots. A perfect 1 pot meal!!

This turned out okay. It was a little too sweet for my liking. I've never made the pot roast with regular cola, so I don't know how it compares. I used a beef roast and it would probably have been better with the pork roast. I'll probably look for a new recipe next time.

I made this last night! It turned out GREAT! It actually put my mother's pot roast to shame! Thanks for sharing this wonderful, fun recipe.

My family and I thought this was so delicious. I have made more than a few "cola" roasts and this is one of the best. The meat was fork tender and it made a lot of delicious gravy, which we put on our rice. Thanks, Charmie. See you in menus.

This worked very well as an all day cock-pot recipe with a boneless pork loin roast. It made a ton of gravy and a very tender roast. I added baby carrots and mushrooms halfway through cooking time and served with mashed potatoes. I was somewhat disappointed with the result. We found the slightly sweet flavor to be interesting and different, okay but not outstanding.

Wonderful and easy pot roast! I did it all in my crockpot on low all day. Then I made the gravy while the roast was being cut. :) Thanks, Charmie777!

This is an incredible and easy meal! The flavor was great, and the meat was very tender with good gravy! Definitely a "keeper."
