Come with me and join Sandra over at Diary of a Stay at home mom for Cooking Thursday, formerly Slow Cooking Thursdays

This week I had a ROAST and didn't know what to do with it, I searched and searched and came across this recipe that seemed to catch my eye and my stomach, I know that many of us buy different type of meats if your anything like you always seem to be at the grocery store when your hungry which is normally why I over shop for stuff. My hubby doesn't normally care to much for Roast but I was determined to get his seal of approval on this recipe. The best of both of his worlds, coffee and meat, OKAY I know before the name scares you away look at the yummy photo I posted. It was so easy to make it took me 10 minutes to prep and in the slow cooker it went.

Slow -Cooked Coffee Beef Roast

PREP TIME: 15 minutes

I have to make sure that I post that this recipe works best with DAY OLD COFFEE we all know that most of us forget to drain that coffee pot from the day before now instead of wasting it we can put it to good use.

1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
