This was a great recipe and very easy. My roast was small so I reduced the onions to a quarter cup of diced sweet onion, half a clove garlic, hot instant coffee, and Tamari (instead of soy sauce - less salty). At the end the cooking time, the chuck was removed to add the whisked cornstarch mixture carefully into the liquid, whisking all until well blended. Then I put the meat back in for half an hour on high. The sauce thickened to produce a rich delicious dark gravy and the meat was moist and succulent. It was easier to shred the meat than slice it with a knife it because it was so tender. I served the meat and gravy over hot egg noodles. Awesome comfort food. Definitely a keeper recipe.
