                         RADIS BGMB90B
    1      tablespoon    Cooking oil
    2 1/2  pounds        Eye of the round beef roast
    1      medium        Onion -- chopped
    1      cup           Brewed coffee
    1      cup           water -- divided
    1                    Beef bouillon cube
    2      teaspoons     Dried basil
    1      teaspoon      Dried rosemary
   10      milliliters   Garlic -- minced
      1/2  teaspoon      Pepper
    1      teaspoon      Salt
      1/4  cup           All purpose flour
 
 1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven; brown roast on all sides.
 2 Add onion and cook until transparent.  Add coffee, 3/4 cup of the water,
bouillon, basil, rosemary, garlic, salt and pepper.
 3. Cover and simmer for about 2 1/2 hours or until meat is tender.
 4. Combine four and remaining water, until smooth; stir into pan juices. Cook and
stir until thickened and bubbly.
 5. Remove roast and slice; pass the gravy, <g>! 
   ELAINE'S NOTE:  I know this is not 'holiday', but it is different. I had a
 boneless chuck roast on hand, and I gave it a try. I did de-fat it (something
 that probably would not be necessary with eye of the round). I bet you could do
 this in the Crockpot after the first browning...it is DELICIOUS and will be a
 Radis Family favorite.
