Pot Roast Recipe

My very first from scratch recipe as a wife was a hit. It smelled sooo good all day, and Eric and I both loved it! It has surprising ingredients, but its super easy. While it was cooking, I also conquered the laundry (finally!) and did some other cleaning around the house. I'm super wife!

Coffee Pot Roast

  • 3 pound beef pot roast
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 can (approx. 15oz) diced tomatoes with liquid
  • 1 cup black coffee
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 cups diced carrots
  • 2 1/2 cups diced potatoes
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen veggies
  • flour mixed with cold water to thicken liquids, optional


Brown meat on all sides in butter in heavy kettle or Dutch oven. Add tomatoes, coffee, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 1 1/2 hours. Add onion and carrot; simmer for 15 minutes.

Add potatoes and cook until vegetables are tender; add frozen veggies and cook for 3 or 4 more minutes.

To thicken liquids: Make a paste with 1 or 2 tablespoons of flour and a little cold water; stir until smooth. Stir into hot liquid a little at a time until desired consistency is reached.
Pot roast serves 6.
