I changed this recipe quite a bit. I didn't make it in the oven, I wanted to make this a crockpot meal so I wouldn't have to "babysit." I first layered a chopped onion on the bottom of the crock, then the roast. I sauteed sliced fresh mushrooms and a couple chopped cloves of garlic in EVOO, then added it to the crock before pouring in the soda mixture. To the soda mixture, I added worchestershire sauce to the soda mixture, along with pepper to taste. The end result was almost like a burgundy roast/sauce. (I plan on adding 1/2 c. of red wine to the sauce the next time I make it, to boost the flavor another notch.) To thicken the sauce, I added two tablespoons of cornstarch to 1/4. cup of soda, then poured it into the crock. I paired it with this potato recipe, which I did half red potato and half cauliflower: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Suzys-Mashed-Red-Potatoes/Detail.aspx VERY tasty. The whole family gobbled it up and asked for seconds, even the kids. Both my husband and I were surprized at the end result, which is not what we imagined the roast would taste at all.
