A few ingredients you wouldn’t expect go into this recipe for Slow Cooker Amish Pot Roast!
As you may already know I love trying new recipes. I found this recipe online and had to give it a try. The coffee isn’t a big noticeable flavor in this recipe. The soy sauce, coffee and Worcestershire sauce along with the beef is surprisingly tasty.
Another great thing about this meal, is that besides the roast, pretty much all the other ingredients are normal pantry items I usually have on hand.
I start by browning a chuck roast in a skillet on the stove-top, then I add the roast, seasonings, soy sauce, coffee, Worcestershire sauce, onion and bay leaves on top. The Worcestershire sauce is my addition to this recipe, I thought it would add a little tang and lend a little more flavor to the sauce combination.
I served this roast and sauce with mashed potatoes, though I know this would be really good with rice instead.
