HONEY BALSAMIC ROAST BEEF
2 – 2 1/2 lb Chuck Roast
3/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 cup Beef Broth or Stock (i used low sodium…use 3/4 cup if you have a bigger roast)
2 T Local Honey
2 T Worcestershire
1 T Grainy Mustard
1 T Soy Sauce (low sodium)
1/2 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
3-5 cloves garlic, crushed and thrown on top
Mix all ingredients together, minus the garlic. Put Roast in Crockpot after spray with nonstick cooking spray. I DID NOT sear the Roast before cooking, as I usually do. It turned out great without that step!!!! What a timesaver! Dump the mix over the roast. Throw garlic in on top. Turn on LOW for 7 hours….DO NOT PEEK!!!!! NEVER take a lid of a Crockpot unless you have to add an ingredient and the recipe says to…..it lowers the temp too much and takes too long to get back to the right temp.
also, be sure to use a good quality Balsamic Vinegar…..that makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE!!!!!!
DINNER IS SERVED!
