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.
Excellent!! You deserve another star just for the simplicity of this recipe. Perfect for mom's on the run in the mornings. Just toss in the crock pot before work, and when you get home supper is waiting! I didn't quite use the whole can of Pepsi, I was afraid it would make it turn out too sweet. Instead, it turned out fabulous! Thanks for sharing!
DELICIOUS. As a busy mom who is always on the look out for easy, great recipies, I thank you so much for this one! I followed your recipie exactly and it was tender and ...did I mention delicious! My kids and hubby gobbled it up!
Made this on Sunday for supper. It was a last minute idea so I had to cook in oven. I put it at 350 for 1 hour and 45 minutes. I should of taken off cover and browned just a bit. But is was definitely tender. I followed the ingredients as written even after reading all the reviews. Personally I did find it a bit on the sweet side. But I believe it is up to each personal taste buds, didn't stop me from eating it though. I will make it again but with less Pepsi. Maybe I found it sweet because I don't ever drink sodas. But this was yummy and tender. I had it with mashed potatoes and some steamed green beans, mmmmm. I added corn starch to the sauce for gravy. Thanks for posting.
This turned out pretty darn good... I used Cream of Chicken soup instead because that was all there was. It turned out very tender and mighty tasty. Even my honey-bunch liked it and asked for it again. Thanks for a great recipe.
