Slow Cooker Roast Beef with Red Eye Gravy

Dad and I have a bit of a deal. Every week or so I go over to his house with a couple of homemade dinners and delicious dessert (yesterday I also took a piece of the frittata for breakfast), and he heads to the local fried chicken joint, and picks up two fried chicken dinners for us to enjoy that day. Neither one of us ever eats fast food, except when he goes to that fried chicken place, and we love it!

One of the meals that I take him that he likes the best is roast beef, mashed potatoes, and green beans almandine, a meal we fondly remember my mother making quite often. It is always delicious and satisfying, and one of the easiest meals that I make. The beef is done in the crockpot -- the standard recipe that you all have probably seen, but I tweak it a bit by adding red wine and strong coffee. There is something about those two ingredients that makes it so rich and delicious that you will find yourself moaning with delight with each tender mouthful.

I am known for my roast beef dinners. Make this easy recipe, and you will be known for your roast beef dinners, too.

Slow Cooker Roast Beef with Red Eye Gravy

1 3-pound beef roast (I use a rump roast)
1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup (yes, canned soup, so shoot me)
1 pkg.
dry onion soup mix
1/4 cup dry red wine
1/2 cup strong brewed coffee

Place beef into a crockpot that has been lightly sprayed with Pam. In a medium bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients. Pour over roast, cover with lid, and cook on low for eight hours. That’s it. Pure deliciousness!

Another super easy slow cooker beef recipe is these mouth-watering Coca-Cola Short Ribs.

I won’t lie...the coffee and the mushroom soup both threw me! You always have the most interesting additions to food!!! I will try the soup, but I’m gonna have to think long and hard about the coffee, girlfriend! Does the coffee flavor come through at all? Rump roast is a favorite in ,y house (as we already established on Facebook!😄).
