Chuck Roast with Root Vegetables 
Merna makes this boneless chuck roast the way her mother always did. 

3- to 4-pound boneless chuck roast
Vegetable or olive oil
1/3 cup strong coffee
1 to 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
Salt, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
1 to 2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
Red potatoes, diced large
Carrots and parsnips, sliced

Heat a cast iron or other heavy pan to moderately hot. Lightly flour the roast and brown on all sides in the oil. Pour coffee and Worcestershire over meat. Add water to pan so the liquid level comes up about 2 inches. Add salt, pepper, garlic and onion and cook on stovetop over moderately low heat until tender, usually 2 to 3 hours. Check liquid level occasionally so it doesn’t go dry. Add diced potatoes, carrot slices and parsnips, if available, in the last 20 minutes. The meat and vegetables can be removed and gravy made from liquid.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings
