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

Ingredients

  • 1 beef sirloin tip roast (2-1/2 pounds), cut in half
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1-1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/3 cup sliced green onions
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-1/2 cups brewed coffee
  • 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

Directions

  1. In a large nonstick skillet, brown roast on all sides in oil over medium-high heat. Place in a 5-qt. slow cooker. In the same skillet, saute mushrooms, onions and garlic until tender; stir in the coffee, liquid smoke if desired, salt, chili powder and pepper. Pour over roast.
  2. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until meat is tender. Remove roast and keep warm. Pour cooking juices into a 2-cup measuring cup; skim off fat.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine cornstarch and water until smooth. Gradually stir in 2 cups cooking juices. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes. Serve with beef.
