Slow Cooker Delicious Coffee Pot Roast

This actually came from a recipe book compiled by the wife of a British officer serving in the British Army during the Mandate in Palestine. It is always a hit with whatever meat I am using,including chicken and you would never guess that the secret ingredient is coffee!! It makes a wonderful dark brown, flavorful gravy. Beteyavon!!


  • Prep Time : 15 minutes min
  • Cook Time : 4-5 hours min
  • Ready Time : 19 min


6-8 People


  • 1/2 cup hot instant coffee 1/2 cup boiling water/1 teas instant coffee
  • 1/3 cup Ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons Soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons Wine vinegar
  • 3/4 cup Brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Canola oil
  • 1 large Onion Sliced
  • 3-4 pounds Beef Kolichal Can subsitute, top of rib, chicken or brisket
  • 4 large Potatoes Large diced sections
  • 1 bag baby carrots
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch dissolved in 1/4 cup of cold water


Combine the first seven liquid ingredients for gravy in a small bowl with the cornstarch mixture.
Lay sliced onion on the bottom of slow cooker. Add the vegetables and add the meat on top.
Pour the contents of the bowl with the liquids on top. (I do not add any further spices, however you may add salt and pepper).
Leave on High for one hour and medium for the next 4 hours or more.
Transfer roast to a cutting board; thinly slice against the grain. Place vegetables in a serving dish and pour gravy through a sieve over all.

    I have the same question as Liba.
    I bought a French Roast and would like to have it for Shabbos lunch. Is it possible to cook it in a pot and place on the blech till the morning, will it dry out?

  3. Hi Liba,
    I would just set my crockpot to low and it should be fine. There’s enough liquid if it’s in a crockpot. Ariela, I would make sure the pot isn’t too big as a large surface area may cause liquid/sauce to evaporate too quickly. The meat should fit into a deepis pot with about an inch – 1 1/2 ” space all round. Hope that helps.
