  1. Preheat slow cooker to low setting OR preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Using a sharp knife, make 5 or 6 deep slits around the top and side of the roast. Push the whole cloves of garlic down into the slits. Place the meat in a slow cooker OR a 10x15 inch roasting pan and pour the coffee over the meat.
  3. Cook in slow cooker on low setting for 6 to 8 hours OR bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 2 to 3 hours.

The garlic was a little over the top for me, but overall this was a good recipe. If the coffee evaporates too much, you will get a burned flavor. Dilute the juices if this happens before makin...
