Anyone out there have the recipe for BJ Brewhouse's Beef Pot Roast? It's yummy!

you should not use ANY diet soda product to cook with. The heat changes the artificial sugar to a poison.

I have seen recipes very much like this one except they listed beer instead of cola. I would not use diet cola - either use regular cola, beer, or just plain water.
