Slow Cooker Coffee Chuck Roast

I'm so glad fall is finally here. I've been dying to break out the slow cooker and make some comfort meals! It's just so easy to throw something in it and not think about it for the rest of the day until dinner time.

This is one of my favorite slow cooker recipes. I made it for my friend Mike a couple of Christmases ago as a gift. I used a 4lb roast, quartered it, and placed it inside of slow cooker bag, along with the sliced onions and garlic, which then went inside of a large Christmas tin. I packaged the coffee and soy sauce in a mason jar and the cornstarch went in a snack size baggie. He baked it the next day and his family loved it.

Heads up: this makes the house smell super ridiculously AMAZING.


Slow Cooker Coffee Chuck Roast
recipe from Taste of Home

1 2lb organic, grass-fed chuck roast*
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 cup brewed coffee
1/4 cup soy sauce or soy sauce substitute (coconut aminos, tamari, etc)
1/4 cup cornstarch
6 Tbls water

Place onions in bottom of slow cooker. Top with beef. Spread minced garlic on beef, and sprinkle with garlic powder and black pepper. Combine coffee and soy sauce; pour over beef. Cook on high, 4-6 hours, or low, 6-8 hours, or until tender.

Combine cornstarch and water; stir into juices. Cover and cook on high for 30 minutes or until gravy is thickened.


* If using a larger roast, double the onions and garlic, halve the roast, and layer the onions, garlic and beef. Keep liquid the same.
