Beef Roast & Coffee

Prep : 15 minutes Cook : 8 hours Makes 6 servings

1              boneless beef sirloin tip roast (2-1/2 pounds) cut in half
2              teaspoons canola oil
1-1/2        cups sliced fresh mushrooms
1/3           cup sliced green onions
2              garlic cloves , minced
1-1/2       cups brewed coffee
1             teaspoon Liquid Smoke ***optional
1/2          teaspoon salt
1/2          teaspoon chili powder
1/4          teaspoon pepper
1/4          cup cornstarch
1/3          cup cold water

1 . In a large nonstick skillet , brown roast on all sides in oil over medium-high heat . Place in a 5-quart slow cooker . In the same skillet , saute mushrooms , onions and garlic until tender ; stir in the coffee , Liquid Smoke if desired , salt , chili powder and pepper . Pour over roast . Cover and cook on  low for 8 hours or until meat is tender .

2 . Remove roast and keep warm . Pour cooking juices into a 2-cup measuring cup ; skim fat . In a saucepan , combine cornstarch and water until smooth . Gradually stir in 2 cups cooking juices . Bring to a boil ; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened . Serve with sliced beef .

Day-old coffee is the key to this flavorful beef roast that simmers in the slow cooker until it's fall-apart tender . Try it once and I'm sure you'll cook it again .

    1. Hi Dottie ,
      As you see nothing go to waste in Cajun country . It's is a wonderful favor and adds to the spices . If you notice I love mushrooms any shape or size . Also the green onions put some zip into the dish .
      Thank you for stopping by , stay safe and warm , ~Nee~ :).

  2. Hi Nee, great idea to use coffee, I bet this is delicious! Have a great week-end!

  3. Hi Cheri ,
    Lots of coffee drinkers here and as the saying goes , waste not , want not . Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend . ~Nee~ ;-D

  4. Hi Nee!!!
    Oh I'm lovin this recipe! If I weren't attempting to make John's brisket today, I think I would try this. Coffee and Beef marry so well together. I see you have quite a generous serving of it too. I bet this is delicious!!!

    Thank you so much for sharing, Nee...

    1. Hi Louise ,
      It's a delicious recipe , as all my dishes you can adjust the ingredients to your taste.
      This was last Sunday dinner . I am also going to make John's brisket ... the Awesome Foursome name him "that man can cook" . The helping is generous , hubby was a meat , pasta and potato fan , I changed that , now he gobbles up anything that's sit before him (giggling) :) .

      Thanks for stopping by , stay safe and warm and Hugs to you , Marion and Iggy .

    2. Hi Nee,
      Just as I was oogling your roast this morning Marion beckoned me to her side. She is working up to her old self very slowly, lol...Anyway, I came back to Pin it...Your kids are so funny. did you tell them I will be saving them lots and lots of snow, lol...I'll be pinning this roast now. Thanks again, Nee...

      P.S. How did you know I had Iggy this weekend, lol???

    3. Hi Louise ,
      I am thrilled to hear Marion is almost her old self . Tell her not to rush it and that easy does it .
      My kids keeps me in stitches especially Baby Boy . He is so much like his gramps (hubby father) always into something , Dad calls him the chip off the old block .

      PS: Sometime I get vibes from people I care about . Maybe I read your mind (giggling) so be careful what you think . Oh Louise, I am so bad ...(((HUGS)))

  5. How interesting! Coffee is such unusual ingredient.. I wouldn't have though :D
