What kind of Roast Makes the Perfect Pot Roast in a Slow Cooker?

We love a marbled chuck roast for making a pot roast. However, a sirloin tip roast, rump roast, bottom round, or even a beef brisket would work well too. The key to getting roasts tender in a crockpot is cooking them on low over long periods of time. Our rule-of-thumb anytime there’s still some toughness, cook it another hour and check again. We want the Perfect Crock Pot Roast full of flavor that falls apart perfectly!

I like to find meat on sale at the grocery store and use the slow cooker to create a delicious meal for my family with ease.

How to Make the Slow Cooker Coffee Roast Beef with Garlic

It only takes 4 ingredients to create this magical recipe. A beef roast, garlic, coffee, and soy sauce. However, I added a beef stock packet to the liquid for making an amazing gravy. Another plus as there is no reason to take any extra steps to brown roast before placing it in the slow cooker.

There is nothing fussy about this recipe. Just use a knife to cut several slits in the top of the roast. Place the entire roast into the slow cooker.

Mix the coffee.  You can use a freshly strong brewed coffee or make a cup of instant coffee. I used instant. Adding 1 ½ teaspoons of coffee to 8 ounces of water and it worked out just wonderful in this recipe.

Add the coffee, soy sauce, and garlic to the slow cooker. I tried to make sure that the garlic was on top of the roast. You can use minced garlic from a jar or fresh garlic cloves minced in this recipe or garlic powder, but I would opt for the minced fresh or jarred garlic first.

Cook on low for 7-8 hours or high for 5 hours.

Do a Temp Check for Food Safety

If you want to be safe, you can use a meat thermometer and take the internal temperature of the beef. It should read 160 degrees Fahrenheit or higher.

Remove from the slow cooker and let the roast rest on cutting board placed inside a baking sheet. This will catch any juices that come off the beef. Tent with foil to keep the heat in. After approximately 5-10 minutes, go ahead and slice the roast. I made my cuts about 1-inch wide across the grain.

Make the coffee gravy. Add the liquid from the slow cooker to a small saucepan skim fat for a healthier gravy. Add 1 packet of beef stock and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Combine cornstarch and water for thickening the gravy. In a small bowl mix 3 tablespoons of cornstarch with 3 tablespoons of water. Add the cornstarch mixture to the boiling beef stock whisking to incorporate. Continue to cook for 1-2 minutes until thickened on medium heat.

Save the Leftover Gravy and Freeze it

I always save gravy that is often leftover after the juicy meat and potatoes are gone. Yes, save that gravy. I put it in a leakproof container that is also safe for the freezer. Make sure to label the container with the contents and date. It will last at least 4 months.

When you are ready to use, just thaw and use as a gravy again, or use as a soup base. A soup base is usually the way I use this. It is amazing how this transforms the broth.

Can you Freeze Roast Beef?

Yes, roast beef freezes well. Just make sure to place in an airtight container and it will freeze for up to 4 months. When you are ready to use, just place in the refrigerator to thaw. Reheat in the microwave or oven.

Should Roast be Covered with Liquid in Slow Cooker?

A slow cooker can help you create a tasty meal without the worry of burning your food. To ensure this, reduce the liquid by roughly one-third since it will not evaporate as quickly with a tightly sealed lid. The ingredients should be just covered in order to cook properly and taste great.

How do you Keep Roast Beef from Drying out in a Slow Cooker?

This step is so easy if you have a slow cooker! Simply add liquid (stock, water, or vegetable juice) to come 1/2- 2/3 up the height of your meat. You should cover it in liquid but try not to let too much go over the sides because that will make your meal soggy and mushy instead of moist.
