"Wonderful. I am a huge fan of truly great gravy, and that is just what this recipe makes. I have never made such wonderful beef gravy! The coffee added such a depth of flavor, but was not really identifiable in the finished product. I confess that I did not add the soy sauce, because I'm not a huge fan of it, and did not want to taste soy sauce. It was terrific without it. I also used a flour/milk combination for thickening, as my mom always did. I did also add 2 cups of beef broth when initially assembling the pot roast recipe in the crockpot. I did that so I'd have lots of gravy - which I did, and I have enough leftovers for "gravy bread" just like mom used to serve (which is simply white bread with delicious home-made gravy ladeled over it). Oh, and the meat is fabulously tender. If you think you're someone who can't make good gravy, give this a try. So glad I discovered this recipe. It's definitely my go-to now for pot roast. Highly, highly recommended."

"This was great. I used a smaller piece of meat for less servings, but left the sauce the same (should have increased it another half for more gravy). I used low-sodium soy sauce. Definitely a keeper."
