Hi. If I’m using diced steak would it take less time to cook? Thanks

I made this sc recipe and used coke zero. My family were raving about how good it was. We had it with veges and on bread rolls the next day too. Lots of gravy left over. Next time I will freeze the gravy to use in a sc stew.

Omg this was so so good. Will definitely make this again. Had plenty of gravy left over so I have frozen it to use in a Shepard’s pie

Delicious, tho a little salty for me. I’ll halve the French onion soup or go with a low salt next time. Cooked for 8 hours on low and didn’t need to thicken gravy as it was right consistency to pour over meat and store bought hot chips.

Absolutely delicious…. this will definitely be on our frequently cooked menu
Served with roast potato, onion and carrot, alongside homemade sweet potato chips
I thickened the sauce with cornflour and turned it into more of a gravy

This would have to be one of my favourite slow cooker meals! I usually thicken the sauce with gravy. Any leftovers go into rolls the next day.

Made this for the first time, and really enjoyed it (as did hubby and 2 boys!) Used a 1.6kg roast and cooked for 8.5 hours. When I tried to slice it, it pretty much shredded, so I tossed it back into the pot with the lovely sauce and let it sit for a little bit before serving. With the mushroom soup, French onion soup mix and the sweetness of cola, I found the flavour quite similar to Obsession, which is definitely a good thing. Easy and tasty – would make this one again!

I had a go at making Cola beef for the first time today and it was absolutely delicious and i added 2 Tablespoon’s of honey for a little bit of sweetness and mixed herbs and about 1/1/2 half teaspoons of minced garlic and it’s nice with rump steak

Easy dish, tasty, hubby thought it was absolutely brilliant

I made this for the 1st time today. It’s seems though during these strange times of covid19 that cream of mushroom soup is sold out in every supermarket. So I used cream of celery instead. Still tasted pretty amazing. Although I can’t really compare yet lol! Will try again when I can find mushroom soup:)

This was delicious…. huge hit with the family. I added some sliced mushrooms, salt and pepper & garlic to my dish. Also found it does need thickener such as corn flour at the end for a thicker sauce.

I used diced beef and also added som shredded frozen vegetables and served with Mashed potatoes

If you are worried it will taste like mushroom, it won’t. However you could change to an alternative soup if you want but it will change the recipe 🙂

Can I make this without the mushroom soup?

Awesome and simple, just the way i like it.

I used a 1.5kg topside roast it turned out exceptionally good, meat was so tender.
The leftover meat went into tacos the day after. Satisfying on so many levels.

This recipe is amazing, the beef was so tender and the sauce/gravy is just delicious. I was worried it would be sweet but its perfect. We had it with mash potato but would be fabulous on rolls with salad as well which is what Im going to do next time.

Made this for the first time yesterday and everyone in the family loved it! I added 1 tablespoon of crushed garlic and 1 tablespoon of worcestershire sauce to the sauce and served with roast potato and pumpkin and honeyed carrots. The beef was the most tender I’ve ever tasted and was full of flavour and the gravy was devine, I definitely recommend for you to give this recipe a try 🙂 just don’t tell my other half that it has cream of mushroom soup in it… I didn’t and he loved it 😉

I made this last week. I put it on in the SC before I left for work in the morning (about 6:45). I then went to work all day and then to a physio appointment after work. Got home from work and finally got around to eating it right around 7:00 pm. It cooked for about 12 hours all up…was delicious! I used a 2 kilo chuck roast and it just fell apart in the SC. I had intended that we use it in sandwiches, and I was able to pull the meat apart just using my wooden spoon, no shredding needed. Made some sliders out of it and used a fresh coleslaw mix (just the veggies without the sauce) on the sandwiches. Used the meat with a little bit of the gravy…divine! 🙂

Made this today but I accidentally added condensed cream of asparagus soup instead of the mushroom. It gave the gravy an extra little kick! The family were asking what did I do different this time cause it was great.. I just said a change of soup.. They don’t need to know! Will use the asparagus regularly.
