Very easy! Looking at the recipe, I was looking for a result much like a roast I make with onion soup and half a cup of pepsi. The sauce for this turned out very runny, and very oniony. I'd reduce the amount of sprite and eliminate the onions all together next time. I think the onion soup mix was enough onion flavor. I thickened it with some cornstarch slurry, as previous reviewers did. I used fresh mushrooms, and served over noodles. I have quite a bit of leftovers, but think I can re-purpose this and make a stew by adding some veggies.

The use of Sprite Zero & the ease of crockpot cooking caught my eye. I am so glad I tried this recipe!! The beef is tender & the gravy divine! I was curious as to what flavor the soda would add. It just adds a zingy freshness. I thickened the juices with a cornstarch slurry the last 15 minutes and served with rice. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

We really enjoyed this dish. The sauce is so flavorful. Like the intro states, this would be a good dish to serve over egg noodles. But it would also be good with rice, too, I think. This is so easy to prepare, which is always a plus in my book. I will make this often. Thanks for sharing your recipe, fairprincess_ky. Made for Fall 2011 Pick-A-Chef.
