I used to work in a coffee shop, so the idea of using coffee in a delicious entree just tickles me. The coffee add a rich flavor to the gravy.—


  • 1 boneless beef chuck roast (5 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup strong brewed coffee
  • 3/4 cup plus 1/3 cup water, divided
  • 3/4 cup beef stock
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour


  1. In a Dutch oven, brown roast in oil on all sides. Remove and set aside. Add onion to the pan; saute until tender. Add garlic and seasonings; cook 1 minute longer.
  2. Add the coffee, 3/4 cup water and stock; return roast to pan. Bring to a boil. Cover and bake at 325° for 2-1/4 to 2-3/4 hours or until meat is tender.
  3. Remove beef to a serving platter; keep warm. Combine flour and remaining water until smooth. Stir into pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
  4. Set aside 2 cups shredded cooked Coffee Roast Beef for Mini Beef Chimichangas and 1/2 pound cooked cubed beef for Spinach Beef Stew. Slice remaining roast and serve with gravy.
