3-4 lb. chuck roast (cheapest hunk of beef, with or without the bone)
1/2 c. soy sauce
1 1/2 c. espresso (if using coffee pot coffee, use more)
2 tbs. minced garlic
2 onions, thinly sliced
peppercorns to taste
This got HUGE thumbs up from the meat lovers… Given how easy it was to make, they can have it every week. Place half of the onions in the bottom of the crock pot. Put the meat in, add the garlic to the top of the meat. Pour the soy sauce and coffee over the meat. Top with the rest of the onions. Sprinkle peppercorns on top. Cook for 9 1/2 hours.
When done cooking, remove the meat carefully so it doesn’t fall apart in the crock pot, and set aside, on a plate for serving. Add cornstarch to the “au jus” for gravy OR serve as is, with a really yummy crusty bread for dipping.
For a next day meal, add water (not too much) to au jus for French Onion soup base…
