To Marinate:

  • 3-5 lb Ala-Bob Farm Roast
  • Garlic and Onion (Slivered) Optional
  • 1 cup Vinegar (White or Apple Cider)
  • Water

To Cook:

  • Vegetable Oil
  • 2 Cups Strong Black Coffee
  • 2 cups Water


With a sharp knife, cut slits in the roast and insert slivers of garlic and onion.

Put the meat into a bowl and slowly pour the vinegar over it and then add enough water to cover the meat.  Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 24 hours, basting the meat occasionally.

When the meat has marinated long enough and you’re ready to cook it, pour the vinegar solution off and pat the meat dry with a paper towel.

Place the meat in a heavy pot (an iron Dutch oven is best) and brown in oil until very dark on all sides.

Pour the 2 cups brewed coffee over the meat and add the 2 cups of water.

Cover and cook over low heat for about 6 hours on top of the stove.  You may need to add more water, so check it once in a while, making sure it doesn’t cook dry.  Add only a small amount of water at a time.  Do not add salt and pepper until about 20 minutes before serving.
