For those who are worried about it being too sweet after reading some of these reviews, try using beer instead of cola. My family doesn't like the sweet taste of this recipe when made with cola, but if I use beer, no one stops eating! It's my 2 and 7 year old's favorite meal, and thats saying a lot since they are both very picky eaters. Also, some have mentioned the carrots not being tender enough. I cook this for 5 hours in my crockpot, and prior to putting it all in I boil the potatoes and baby carrots for just a short while to soften them up a bit. Just don't boil for too long or they will get mushy. Based on my family's tastes, this recipe with cola is 1 star, but 5 stars when made with beer!
