Slow-Cooked Coffee Pot Roast
Total TimePrep: 5 min. Cook: 9-1/2 hours
Been using this recipe for years - I just substitute and envelope of onion soup mix in lieu of the cut up onions. Its been a hit with my family and a multitude of guest.
I followed this recipe exactly as I always do before altering it. I was VERY disappointed in the flavor of the gravy!!! It was tasteless!!!! I won't bother trying it again!!
I added baby potatoes, baby carrots and onion wedges. My husband said it was the best pot roast he has ever had.
Danny 21. A visit to your local optometrist might be in order. There are no mushrooms in the picture. Those are the onions. Enlarge your picture and you can tell.
Wonderful. I am a huge fan of truly great gravy, and that is just what this recipe makes. I have never made such wonderful beef gravy! The coffee added such a depth of flavor, but was not really identifiable in the finished product. I confess that I did not add the soy sauce, because I'm not a huge fan of it, and did not want to taste soy sauce. It was terrific without it. I also used a flour/milk combination for thickening, as my mom always did. I did also add 2 cups of beef broth when initially assembling the pot roast recipe in the crockpot. I did that so I'd have lots of gravy - which I did, and I have enough leftovers for "gravy bread" just like mom used to serve (which is simply white bread with delicious home-made gravy ladeled over it). Oh, and the meat is fabulously tender. If you think you're someone who can't make good gravy, give this a try. So glad I discovered this recipe. It's definitely my go-to now for pot roast. Highly, highly recommended.
My family loved this recipe! My daughter is not a big fan of beef roast, but she raved about this slow cooked pot roast! The coffee gave the roast amazing tenderness and flavor!
This was great. I used a smaller piece of meat for less servings, but left the sauce the same (should have increased it another half for more gravy). I used low-sodium soy sauce. Definitely a keeper.

This was one of the best pot roasts I have ever made. The gravy was so flavorful. Will definitely be making this again. Thanks for a fantastic recipe!
Easy to prepare and yummy. Also good leftover.
