I absolutely love this recipe, and I share it with you! This makes the house smell fantastic.

  • 1 large onion, chopped (1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/4 cups strong brewed coffee
  • 3 (3- by 1-inch) strips fresh orange zest
  • 1 (3-inch) cinnamon stick
  • 2 teaspoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 (3 1/2-lb) boneless beef chuck roast
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Preheat your oven to 325


Start with a nicely chopped up onion


Go ahead and brown up the onions in your olive oil


While waiting for this, salt & pepper up your meat


After about 6 minutes they'll be golden and you can add the rest of the ingredients


Combine the seasoned meat with everything else


Throw in the oven for 3.5-4 hours. Your house will smell amazing. Once it's all done take out and enjoy.

I'm making this for a pot luck for work so I don't have sides to go with it. Previously I've made rosemary olive oil potatoes along with sesame seed orange carrots.
