I love this recipe.The meat is soooo tender and delicious.I even have used it for pork pot roast.I also use diet pepsi as that is what I buy and it works just fine.I strongly recommend you to try it.

Thanks for all the comments everyone. Though it does matter for flavor purposes. You could use diet, it just won't be the same as videomaker2000 has pointed out. But of course we all realize that sometimes sugar substitutes are necessary. Thanks for the feedback!

Yes, it does matter. You must use Pepsi with SUGAR in it. No artificial sweetners.

I put all ingredients in my slow cooker and cooked it on low for 6 hours. Meat was tender and flavorful. Will make again, and, I used Diet Wild Cherry Pepsi for a different taste. Yummy.

sounds like this will be good , I will give it a try

I need to know if diet Pepsi will work - my husband is a type A diabetic.

Does one use diet or regular pepsi, or does it not matter?
