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!

Made this for dinner tonight, used a little less soy sauce, powdered garlic, and no bay leaves (none on my shelf). Turned out delish - gravy was fab!

Absolutely mouth watering! The meat and gravy delicious. I used a 3lb bonless rump roast, dried sliced onions, minced fresh garlic in a jar, italian seasoning which had oregano in it. I thickened the juice with premixed flour and water and served with toasted thick crusty bread. I am a believer in coffee, vinegar and soy sauce recipes for meat, such a good tenderizer and taste! I cooked on the stovetop, both my ovens went out at the same time.

This was a wonderful recipe! The coffee I used was French Vanilla flavored so it gave the meat a slight sweetness. It also made the best gravy I have ever had. My husband said this was the best roast I had made yet. Thank you for posting!

I halved the recipe and had some stew meat, so used that. I loved the sauce! I put it in the crockpot and cooked about 5 hours on high. My husband really enjoyed the whole dish. Thanks!
