I made my own onion soup mix and cream of soup and then made the roast. I used coke instead of pepsi, as it is a little sweeter and it turned out really tasty and the roast was fall apart tender. The family and I really enjoyed it and It will be made again!
Awesome!! Will definitely make again.
This recipe is just what is says, simple and full of flavor. I thought enough of it to send it to my mother.....like I could teach her anything!!! This roast fell apart just like a pot roast would and was moist and very tender, I WILL be making this one again!!!!
This did not taste like much. I will stick to the crock pot pork with saurkraut recipe that is no fail.
Pure and simple...comfort food! I used a very inexpensive cut of pork roast, and decreased the Pepsi to about 1 cup. (It scared me!) No reason to be scared. It was delicious! I don't think I will add the whole amount of Pepsi, it would probably would be a bit to sweet for me. I added a bit more salt, black pepper and thickened it with a milk and flour mixture. The slices of meat were extrememly juicy. (Remember to let roast stand for 15 minutes before carving-it will retain moisture that way.) And tender? Oh, my...it nearly melted in my mouth! DS hates onions and anything that comes in close contact with onions. He tried the gravy...too "oniony" for him. But he LOVED the meat. He would rate this as 3 or 4 star. Me? 5-star...all the way! I can think of all kinds of situations this would be a great meal! Thanks for a unique recipe!
Absolutely unbelievably good ! My husband came in tonite, and was smelling this roast outside...wanted to eat quick ;) The taste is awesome ! thank you for such an easy and delicious m
I made this recipe first with a beef roast, but it still was awesome. It was literally the first time I cooked. (First dinner in my new apartment, I used to live with my parents) You can't get wrong with this. First time cook will not screw this up, and a veteran cook will surely adopt this as a favorite. I will be making this recipe with a pork roast tomorrow for sure. FYI, I cooked my beef roast 12 hours on low, it was a juicy and tender. I had some for left overs the day after for my hubby and I. I didn't thicken the gravy with corn starch as I served it over noodles. I would if I served it over mashed potatoes, thought.
WOW! I have made this at least 5 times now...with pork and with beef. The gravy is outstanding. I brown my roast before putting it in the crock pot, and add some onion. I've also added some chunked potatoes and carrots for a one pot meal. thanks for this outstanding recipe!
Ok so this came out great, but as usual I tweaked the recipie I bought a beautiful pork roast about a week ago put it in the frezzer untill I could figure out what to do with it.... found your recipie and voila, so my tweaking I added about 2 lbs of nicely chunked white potatoes 1 lb bag of babby carrots one diced onion dumped two cans of the cream of mushroom soup in placed the frozen pork roast on top added 2 packages of onion mushroom soup mix ( we like onions ) and poured 3 cups of diet pepsi over it all started it at 7am we came home after a verry exciting cross country meet about 4 pm I was woried the meat was not cooked all the way because of the frozen state we started with so I pulld the meat out cut it in half and my son walks in and said the stew looks great so what the heck I boiled up a bag of noodles, cut the meat into cubes and threw some frozen corn in,celery seed, garlic powder and italian seasoning!!!!!! We have a new recipi now pork pepsi stew in our house now.. thank you!!!
I loved the simplicity of the recipe but the finished product carried too much of an onion taste for our family. I would be willing to try it again, and only use half of the package of onion soup mix.
