4 pounds of meat is 64oz how are we getting that a serving is 3 ounces and that there are 10 servings?
Coffee-Braised Pot Roast with Caramelized Onions
This recipe is reminiscent of a pot roast made with onion-soup mix, but the flavors are true and pure--and nobody misses the excess sodium. (For a slow-cooker variation, see below.)

Took out as much fat as possible. Seasoned meat and browned. Caramelized onions. Threw it all in a crock pot. Used full amount of coffee and added water. Added cremini mushrooms and mushroom bouillon last hour along with penne rigate. Turned into a great beef with pasta dish.
This recipe required very little tweaking and the sauce was delicious.
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.
Made the crock pot variation tonight and it was a hit. My husband said to throw away all the other pot roast recipes and use this one from now on. The coffee and juice from the meat makes a delicious gravy. But it was not quite enough gravy to go with the leftovers. Next time I will add some the full cup of coffee instead of the 1/2 cup.
