Ingredients

  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 boneless beef chuck roast (3 to 3-1/2 pounds)
  • 1-1/2 cups strong brewed coffee
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water

Directions

  1. Mix garlic, salt and pepper; rub over beef. Transfer to a 4-qt. slow cooker. Pour coffee around meat. Cook, covered, on low until meat is tender, 8-10 hours.
  2. Remove roast to a serving plate; keep warm. Transfer cooking juices to a small saucepan; skim off fat. Bring to a boil. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water until smooth; gradually stir into cooking juices. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Serve with roast.
