Make a tasty and unique dinner tonight with the help of your slow cooker when you prepare this old-fashioned Amish pot roast! This pot roast is cooked until falling apart in the crockpot, then shredded in with a delicious brown onion gravy. Unique ingredients like soy sauce and prepared coffee add a mysterious yet deep flavor to the gravy.
Unlike traditional pot roasts, which typically use various vegetables like carrot and celery, the recipe below simply uses only beef and sliced white onion. The savory beef and sweet onion combine together to form a delicious union of umami flavor. This is a "low-and-slow" dish which requires an extended cook time, so it's perfect to prepare for dinner after a long workday.
