Roast Beef with Coffee

After messing around, it hit me to come up with a recipe for coffee aficionado! There’re plenty of desserts made with coffee, even treats, and snacks. Why not a meal! When cooking with coffee, any meat won’t do the job. Beef rules the universe when it comes to cooking with coffee.

Having doubts about cooking with coffee? All I can say is give it a try, and you’ll thank me later! In fact, welcome to the bayou because back then, we cooked with everything!


  • 3-5 pounds roast beef (any cut)

  • garlic or onion slivers

  2. Insert slivers of garlic down into the slits.
