"Another great recipe found in my Grandparentsdotcom Newsletter - Per the intro, "Coffee, garlic & soy sauce aren't flavors you'd necessarily mix. But after a few hours in the slow cooker, they're darn near magical - Especially slathered on pot roast. This recipe comes from "Taste of Home Recipes Across America", a new cookbook highlighting classic regional dishes from across the country." Slow cookers are magical & this recipe will save you the normally labor-intensive prep of the classic pot roast. Enjoy!"

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Place half of the onions in a 5-quart slow cooker. Top w/garlic & half of the beef. Top w/remaining onion & beef. Combine coffee & soy sauce; pour over beef. Cover & cook on low for 9-10 hours or until the meat is tender.

Step 2

Combine cornstarch & water until smooth; stir into cooking juices. Cover & cook on high for 30 minutes or until the gravy is thickened. Serve immediately.

NOTE: The pic suggested serving w/carrots plus roasted or mashed potatoes. I think mushrooms would be an especially good add if you favor them w/pot roast

Simple, easy and full of flavour! We thoroughly enjoyed this pot roast! Surprised at how the coffee/soy made this so delicious! Just added a good grinding of pepper and mushrooms before cooking. Thanks for sharing this repeatable recipe TwisSis! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.

Talk about easy! We love pot roast and anytime I don't need to brown it first (and dirty an extra pan), that is a bonus. This turned out juicy and tender and the gravy was very rich, almost like French onion soup. Will be making this again.
