    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
    2. 2
      Do not pound or flour the meat. Heat oil in a heavy skillet over high heat, then sear meat on both sides.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, in a large roasting pan, combine soy sauce, coffee, bay leaves, garlic, oregano and one of the sliced onions.
    4. 4
      Transfer the browned meat to the roasting pan.
    5. 5
      Top with the second sliced onion.
    6. 6
      Cover and bake for 3 1/2 to 4 hours, basting every hour with pan juices.
    7. 7
      If the liquid begins to boil away, add another cup of coffee and a splash of soy sauce. You may need to repeat this procedure; there should be quite a bit of liquid.
    8. 8
      Cut the meat in thin slices and serve with pan juices.

      This is just...awesome! I found this recipe because I had some leftover coffee and boy am I glad no one drank that last cup! This was definitely a WOW. I had under a pound and a hall beef pot roast, grass fed, and halved the recipe to specifications. I too had just shy of the full measurement of soy sauce, and it was perfectly fine. The roast was moist enough that it didn't need any extra coffee or soy sauce added during the basting or to be drowned in onions to be great on its own. Speaking of onions, they were carmelized perfectly. The aromas were to die for while this was cooking all afternoon.

      By the time it had cooked to the full four hours, the sauce was the right amount to baste the top and serve with nothing left to be wasted.This will become a heirloom recipe, I'm sure.

      WOW! I made this exactly as directed and it was very tender with a really good flavor - it must be the combination of coffee and soy sauce. Thanks Dancer, I'll be making this one again!

      Mmmm....the best pot roast I have ever had!!! Will definitely make it this way again. I just used a cheap pot roast put it all in the crockpot and cooked for 8 hours. Added carrots about 2 hours into cooking. My whole family loved it! Thanks!
