My Coffee-Marinated Pot Roast

READY IN: 5hrs
Recipe by GrammyLee Butler

This is the roast my family loves. VERY tender and YumMY! I like to marinate it overnight, but it doesn't have to be. Two hours would be enough. Hope you enjoy as much as my sweet family does. :o)

Made the recipe pretty much as given, with the roast being a bit more than 4 pounds! I'm not that big on using coffee in anything, but then, the roast was part of my one-time contribution to a local group that helps feed the homeless! AND, my very eager other half's taste-test let me know that it should have been made for right here at home! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
