Slow Cooker Au Jus Pot Roast

"I've never found a recipe I really liked for a savory, au jus-style pot roast without mushy veggies and a weird sweetness. So after some experimenting, this is the way I make it every time now. The tomato sauce disappears and will not make a tomato-flavored gravy. Quick and easy. The roast size and cut can vary, and it will still turn out great. Good for those who don't like onions, although they can be added if you like. I love to make homemade mashed potatoes and dill carrot slices for sides. Cook roast on top of sliced onion rings if desired."

Given the broad and varied array of ingredients I expected something different, unusual. Would I taste the coffee? Would it be tomato-y? Would it instead have its own unique flavor? I probabl...

I made this for company. I doubled the amount of coffee, a mistake, but was OK because we like lots of gravy. I thickened the sauce with cornstarch. I love Montreal Steak seasoning and it's a...

This is really very, very good. I followed the recipe exactly, only I did slice an onion and minced a clove of garlic and put them in the crock pot under the roast. Other than that I followed ...
