Cola is the secret ingredient in this delicious slow-cooked beef. Coated with a well-seasoned sauce, the tender meat gets its zip from chili powder and cayenne pepper. —Marie Basinger of Connellsville, Pennsylvania

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 9, 2011

This recipe turned out extremely dry. I followed everything, except I omitted the Worcestershire sauce and the cayenne pepper. I don't think it is necessary to brown the roast before placing in the crockpot. This just made for really dry, tough pieces of meat. I also would add more beef bouillon or some beef gravy to the beef in order to have more moisture. The meat had really good flavor, so the potential is there. I will make again, but with some adjustments to account for the dryness.
