  • Preheat oven to 325°F. Heat oil in ovenproof nonstick Dutch oven on medium-high heat. Add roast; cook until browned on all sides. Combine coffee granules and 3/4 cup water; pour over roast. Season with salt and pepper. Add onions; cover pan with ovenproof lid.
  • Bake 1-1/2 hours. Add potatoes, carrots and tomatoes; cover. Continue baking 45 min. to 1 hour or until roast is cooked through and tender.
  • Remove roast and vegetables from the pan, reserving juices in pan. Cut roast across the grain into thin slices. Serve roast and vegetables topped with the reserved meat juices.

Use Your Stove

To cook the pot roast on top of the stove instead of in the oven, brown roast in Dutch oven as directed. Add remaining ingredients; cover with lid. Reduce heat to low; simmer 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until roast is cooked through and tender.

How to Make The Gravy

Remove the cooked roast and vegetables from pan as directed; cover to keep warm. Add 1/4 cup water to 2 Tbsp. flour; stir until well blended. Gradually add to meat juices in pan, stirring until well blended. Cook until mixture boils and thickens, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 3 min., stirring constantly. Serve over roast and vegetables as directed.

    Family loved it, even my 3 yr old.

    This was the first pot roast I have ever made and it turned out perfect. I did it in the crock pot instead of the oven though and it was very moist

    I made this recipe for my husband and five other friends and they loved it. I was very pleased that everyone liked it as much as I did.
