Best Effortless Pot Roast
I have made pot roasts in the past typically with a soup mix and found them far too salty and not nearly tender enough. This roast on the other hand is just the opposite. After searing I braised my beef in the onion, coffee concoction for 2 1/2 hours, occasionally basting the roast with the juices in the pan really just for fun. I let it rest while I steamed green beans and carrots and finished the gravy. I recommend adding a splash of red wine (cab sauv works nicely) and a little more coffee to the gravy and reducing before adding the thickening agent. It makes for a richer gravy without adding too many calories or salt. For the salt lover give them the shaker and let em go to town - but I assure you they probably won't need it. Delicious to the last bite.
Pros: Pros: Easy, delicious, low sodium, natural.
