Balsamic Roast Beef
Would you like something a little different in a roast beef recipe for your slow cooker? Would you like a recipe that calls for a handful of ingredients that you probably already have on hand? How about a simple but delicious dinner idea? Well here it is! I have made roast in the Crock Pot for years and I am quite sure that you probably have your go-to roast recipe as well. I am sure yours is great, too. Sometimes, though, you just need something a little different and this is it! It calls for a few ingredients you most likely already have at home. It literally requires no prep other than putting it all in the slow cooker and letting it work its magic! I used a rump roast for this, but a round roast or a chuck roast will work too. Hope you like it! I served this with roasted sliced sweet potatoes!
Here's all you need:
1 3-4 pound boneless beef roast (rump, round or chuck roast)
1 cup beef broth
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar ( if you are using a smaller roast, only do 1/4 cup)
1 T Worcestershire sauce
1 T soy sauce
1 T honey
1/4 t red pepper flakes ( more if you want more heat)
4 garlic cloves minced
1 bay leaf
Place the roast in the slow cooker. Mix the rest of the ingredients, besides the bay leaf, together with a whisk and pour over the roast in the slow cooker. Add in the bay leaf. Cover and cook 4-5 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low or until the meat is tender. Carefully remove the roast and place on a serving platter. Allow to rest a few minutes then slice ( it will probably be falling apart). Ladle the juice from the slow cooker over the roast. (You can skip this step and just leave it in the slow cooker and serve it from there, if you want!) This was delicious and so easy for a weeknight dinner!
