“I found a slow cooker recipe for pork roast using cola and decided to go in a different direction. I saw beefy mushroom soup mix at the store and decided to use it as well as add mushrooms & turnips. I also increased the amounts of the soup, mix, and cola so there would be more broth. This made an excellent and hearty stew. The turnips are have less carbohydrates than potatoes with 8g of carbs & 3g of fiber per cup compared to potatoes which have 32g of carbs & only 2g of fiber per cup. Although potatoes do have a higher vitamin & mineral content than turnips. I am diabetic so the less carbs the better.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 -3 lbs pork roast (I used sirloin roast as it was $1 cheaper than pork shoulder or lb)
  • 2 (10 ounce) cansof condensed beefy mushroom soup (I used campbells)
  • 6 tablespoons onion soup mix (we buy via the dry foods bin)
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic (can use fresh, we used jarred)
  • 2 small yellow onions, diced
  • 3 regular sized turnips, peeled & cubed (can use potatoes)
  • 3 fresh portebellow mushrooms (dice one, slice the others)
  • 2 (12 ounce) cans cola (you can use any cola, including diet)
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce


  1. put the pork roast into slow cooker.
  2. Put soup, soup mix, and cola into slow cooker, stir.
  3. put in the veggies & mushrooms, stir.
  4. Cook on high for at least 5 hours or 10 hours on low. Check meat and turnips to make sure cooked thoroughly.
  5. When the pork is cooked & ready, I recommend pulling it apart with a fork so its shredded and evenly distributed. The meat will also be more moist this way.
