Coffee is the key to this flavorful beef roast that simmers until it's fall-apart tender. Try it once, and I'm sure you'll cook it again. —Charles Trahan, San Dimas, California


  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 beef sirloin tip roast (2-1/2 pounds), halved
  • 1-1/2 cups brewed coffee
  • 1-1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/3 cup sliced green onions
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup cold water


  1. Select saute or browning setting on a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker. Adjust for medium heat; add 1 teaspoon oil. When oil is hot, brown 1 roast half on all sides. Remove; repeat with remaining beef and oil. Add coffee to pressure cooker. Cook 1 minute, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Press cancel. Add mushrooms, green onions, garlic, liquid smoke if desired, salt, chili powder, pepper and beef.
  2. Lock lid; close pressure-release valve. Adjust to pressure-cook on high for 50 minutes. Let pressure release naturally. Press cancel.
  3. Remove roast and vegetables to a serving platter; tent with foil. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Reserve 2 cups cooking juices; discard remaining juices. Transfer back to pressure cooker. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into pressure cooker. Select saute setting and adjust for low heat. Simmer, stirring constantly, until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Serve with roast and vegetables.
