"This is by far the simplest way to make roast beef and gravy," assures Abby Metzger of Larchwood, Iowa. "On busy days, I can put this main dish in the slow cooker and forget about it. My family likes it with mashed potatoes and fruit salad."
"Start this simple roast in the morning and you'll have savory slices of meat and gravy ready at suppertime," writes Tracy Ashbeck of Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin. The tender beef is loaded with homemade taste and leaves plenty for main dishes later in the week.
I'm currently retired and an Assistant Scout Master of a troop. I've taught boys to cook for 35 years. This is a nice recipe for teaching basic cooking skills. Plus, the soup cooks all day, leaving you free to do other things.—Earnest Riggs, Niles, Michigan
This roast beef is the best I’ve ever tasted, and it’s great for family dinners! Cube leftover meat and save any extra sauce; they’ll add new flavor to basic fried rice. —Caroline Flynn, Troy, New York
This recipe has been a family tradition since 1974. The meat is quick and flavorful, so it's a nice welcome home after a long day of work. The coffee adds an intriguing flavor to the roast and can be thickened for a delicious gravy.—Nancy Schuler, Belle Fourche, South Dakota
