This is a really tasty dish that originated in Spain. We love it. It's especially good in the cooler months of the year, served with freshly made buttered bread. This slow cooker is traditionally done in the oven, but cooks just as well in a crock pot.

Buche Boliche (Pot Roast with Expresso Sauce)
Ingredients:

1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Oregano leaves
3/4 tsp fresh ground black Pepper
3 Garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 lbs. trimmed Eye Round Roast
1/2 cup mashed ripe Banana or Plaintain
6 dried Dates, pitted
1 tbsp drained Capers
2/3 cup diced Carrot
1 cup brewed Expresso coffee, room temperature
1/4 cup dry Red wine

With a mortar and pestle, mash together 1/2 tsp of the salt, 1/2 of the oregano, 1/2 of the pepper and 1/2 of the garlic. Set aside.
Using a long, narrow non-serrated knife and make a 1 inch hole down the center of the roast. Insert the knife in one end and twist it as you pierce all the way through the length of the roast. You may need to stick the knife back in and turn a few times to get a nice circular hole for the stuffing.
In a small bowl, mash the banana, dates and capers with the remaining half of the spice and garlic mixture. When it holds itself together, use your fingers and push it through the hole in the roast until the stuffing is throughout the roast, end to end. Rub the remainder on the outside of the roast Place the onion and carrot in the crock pot, add the roast to the top.
Let it rest in a cool place 1 hour, turning occassionally. After it has marinated 1 hour in this fashion, pour the wine and expresso over the roast in the crock pot, add water if needed to cover. Cook on low for 5 to 8 hours, or until it flakes when a piece is pulled.

Well, it's actually spelled both ways. In Miami, they use the 'x' a lot, so I spell that way. TY for making a reply, I just started this cubit, and am working to stock it with recipes. I hope you like the roast as much as we do :)
