1 (3 pound)
beef sirloin tip roast
1 1/2 cups
ground black pepper
salt to taste
I made this yesterday using beef arm roast that I cut in half to fit in my smaller slow cooker. I browned it according to the recipe then placed it in my slow cooker. I sauteed the onions and garlic, and put them on top. I replaced bouillon cubes with 2tsp Better Than Bouillon soup base and omitted the salt. I used a few teaspoons of dried basil. The roast cooked completely submerged in liquid on low for 8-9 hours, completely fell apart. The gravy was fabulous. I couldn't taste the coffee directly, but there was a depth of flavor that was tasty. Something that tells you, "Secret Ingredient", but you'd never guess coffee. I served it all with mashed potatoes and peas. I will be making it again and am curious to try it with a venison roast.
I made this in my dutch oven. The meat was tender enough and flavorful but the gravy was awful! I will not make this again. There was too much salt and pepper.
YUM! Used a bit of a dry rub we had on hand and omitted the extra salt.
Very Delicious... I added carrots and potatoes after an hour of cooking. I then strained the vegetables and added the flour/water mixture. Made a yummy gravy.
Loved this recipe! My grocery didn't have the sirloin tip so I used a pot roast. I wasn't expecting much since it was a cheaper cut of meat, but it turned out delicious. The only other change i made to the recipe was I used half the salt since we have been trying to watch our salt intake. I can't wait to make this again using the sirloin tip roast!
Wow!Pot roast is one of my all-time favorites. I've tried numerous recipes and they've all bee good. This one, however, is IT! Absolutely Delicious! I used a top round roast & dried basil. After browning the meat & sauteing the onions & garlic, I deglazed the pan with the coffee & transferred everything to a crockpot. I let it cook on low while I was at work. When I got home, I just removed the roast to another dish, then poured the jus into a pot on the stove, stirred in the flour/water mix & let it thicken. The gravy was truly To Die For! I've found my new definite Go-To recipe! Oh, and I did use dried basil as well.
I used chuck roast, and it turned out very tender. I didn't have beef bouillon, so I added 1/2 tsp liquid smoke and 2 tsp soy sauce. It made a very good gravy. After browning the roast, I put it in the slow cooker for about 6 hours.
Awesome...easy to make and tastes great. I put mine in a slow cooker on low for about 6 hours and it was fabulous. I have made it several times since. Thanks for sharing!
