Made this recipe twice. Both times I used cola instead of dark beer and I think it turned out great without the beer. The first time I cut out the soy sauce and I felt that the meat was missing some flavor. The second time I included the soy sauce and the meat was tasty. Pretty good recipe overall.
did the marinade. way to salty for my family. and I only did 1/2 the called for soy sauce. would do it again and not do soy sauce.
We LOVE this! I use a crock pot and skip the marinade step. VERY YUMMY -- one of my husband's favorites.
