delicious beef in a rich mushroom gravy. Comfort food that you can put in the crock pot and forget. Great over egg noodles or rice.

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.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 lbs stew meat
  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
  • 12 ounces diet Sprite
  • 1 (1 1/4 ounce) envelope onion soup mix
  • 1 medium onion, chopped in chunks
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms


  1. empty can of sprite, can of soup and soup packet into crockpot. Add onion and beef. Stir together, and cook on low for 4-5 hours. Stir contents, add frehs mushrooms and cook on high 1 hr longer. Sometimes I add a little crushed red pepper for some spice. Enjoy.
  2. note: For convenience you can use canned mushrooms, they can go in at the beginning. Just cook about 7-8 hrs on low instead.
