Between the 3 of us we give this a 3.7 star rating! My wife and I liked it, the 15 yearold daughter sort of liked it. We all agreed it was to sweat, either the cola or the brown sugar needs to be reduced, the girl suggested trying ginger ale next time. Overall a good dish and will be made again with minor changes. Thanks for posting it!

This is very flavorful and easy. Since there were only two of us dining, I used a 2 pound piece of beef, and cut the sauce amounts in half. I cooked it in a castiron pot on the stovetop over very low heat the first day, and in a skillet on the stovetop the following. The meat turned out tender and moist, and the vegetables were nice, too. I used standard coca cola, and followed the recipe for all other ingredients. It's a very nice recipe, but was just slightly too sweet for my taste. JMO.

This is delicious. We all enjoyed it. I did mine in a huge crockpot and let it cook all day - the meat was falling apart. I think I might add more peppers next time, they just really added a nice flavor. We ate ours that very nice, and had leftovers the next day. The second day was a little better than the first, but both days were wonderful.
