    Oolala's Note:

    Found this in a Heloise column. It was requested as a reprint from a recipe originally printed over 40 years ago. This roast beef is marinated and cooked in coffee! I love unusual sounding recipes. Might want to consider decaf!

    To Cook


    1. 1
      With a sharp knife, cut slits all the way through the roast and insert slivers of onions and garlic.
    2. 2
      Put the meat into a bowl and slowly pour the vinegar over it so that it runs down the sides into the slits.
    3. 3
      Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 24-48 hours.
    4. 4
      When ready to cook, pour the vinegar off.
    5. 5
      Place the meat in a heavy dutch oven and brown in oil until very dark on all sides.
    6. 6
      Pour the 2 cups of brewed coffee over the meat and then add 2 cups of water.
    7. 7
      Cover and cook slowly for approximately 6 hours on top of the stove.
    8. 8
      You may need to add more water at some point, so check it once in a while and add only a small amount of water at a time.
    9. 9
      Season well, but do not add the salt and pepper until about 20 minutes before serving.

      Extremely tasty! Love the taste with all that garlic and onion. As I was only making this for 2, I used a small arm roast. The liquid made a wonderful gravy. Thnx for sharing your recipe, Oolala. Made for Comfort Cafe Snow Queen Chalet Jan 2010.

      thank you for posting this recipe. i have made it for a million years and never thought of posting it. it is time consuming and even though the ingredients are weird, the end results are terrific. i usually set off the smoke alarms in the house when i make it.
