Reviews for Slow-Cooked Coffee Beef Roast
"We've made this several times and love the flavor and tenderness of the meat."
"Just eh. I'm sure not going to find my chili powder had a lot to do with it."
"This is absolutely wonderful! Excellent flavor! Easy to prepare and the leftovers, if there are any, make a fantastic stew. When we want to splurge, we use croissants to make sandwiches from the leftovers!"
"I also added a cup of beef broth and used a shoulder roast because that was what I had. My husband absolutely loved it!"
"I agree that it had a musky smell when cooking, however, it was very tender and flavorful. Then again, I didn't have the chili powder so I substituted cayenne pepper for it. That exchange added a nice "bite" to the flavor."
