An absolute favorite of my meat-and-veggies-only man. This brings him home every time!! I love this recipe. Fuss-free preparation, but it takes some thinking ahead for cooking time. Tender beef simmered in roasted coffee. Absolutely delicious.

  • In the same saucepan, melt the remaining butter, add the salt and onions and saute for 5 minutes. Return the meat to the saucepan and pour in the coffee and the mushrooms.

  • Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 hours, turning meat over halfway through cooking time.

  • To make gravy: Remove a cup of the coffee mixture from the saucepan, combine with the cornstarch, stirring until smooth, and return to the simmering pan. Mix well, remove from heat and serve.

This recipe is fabulous. For those who dont like or drink coffee (my kids) you cant tell it was cooked in coffee. I like it for the fact that you dont have to have your oven on all day. The meat is incredibly tender moist & well flavored. I use a packet of onion soup mix and a can of cream of mushroom soup into the coffee as well!

I have mixed emotions about this recipe. My husband pronounced the roast as good (not his highest praise) but neither of us particularly cared for the gravy. I cooked it in my slow cooker which helped keep the roast moist and tender and like another reviewer I added a package of dry onion soup mix to it. I think it added some flavor but the taste of the coffee was just too strong and overpowering. I have a number of ways to cook a roast AND enjoy the gravy so I would not make this recipe again.

Although the roast came out very tender (I made it in my slow cooker) the flavor of the coffee completely overpowered the taste of the meat. My husband said "If I had wanted chewable coffee I would have asked for it!" The gravy was even worse since the flavor of the coffee had acquired a burnt taste which was passed on to the gravy. I definitely won't be making this one again!

Not sure what to say about this. It was not inedible but thankfully I used pretty weak coffee. I could taste too much burnt-coffee flavor. Thanks though.
