Okay, this. This needs to be on your menu immediately. No kidding. By now, you’ve probably noticed that I really love my slow cooker. I also really, really love roast beef recipes. And when you marry the two you get the easiest slow cooker roast beef recipes you could ever imagine. I fall in love with them more every single time I make them. But this. This balsamic roast beef recipe really has become a family favorite.
Full of flavor, but not in a way that is overpowering by any means, my balsamic roast beef recipe is perfect for busy weeknights or a slow Sunday supper. And the leftovers? You definitely want to have leftovers of this roast beef – or do like I’ve done in the past and cook two just to be sure that you do!
I’m all about simple recipes that I know will be loved when I serve them. When they are routinely requested for supper, I know I’ve done something right. And this recipe falls into that category.
My balsamic roast beef recipe doesn’t require any browning of your beef before adding to your slow cooker or anything of that nature. You simply add your roast beef to the slow cooker, mix and pour in all of your liquid ingredients, toss in your garlic and turn on your slow cooker.
After it has cooked, remove your roast beef with tongs into a serving dish. I then like to just use two forks to break the meat that hasn’t already fallen apart into pieces. Then, I spoon some of the gravy over the meat and serve.
But, be sure to pour the remaining gravy into an airtight container and place in your refrigerator to use for another meal – like these Balsamic French Dip Sandwiches!
Here’s the recipe for my Balsamic Roast Beef. I can not wait to hear how you like this one!
- 1 3-4 pound boneless roast beef (chuck or round roast)
- 1 cup beef broth
- ½ cup balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon honey
- ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 4 cloves garlic, chopped
- Place roast beef into the insert of your slow cooker. In a 2-cup measuring cup, mix together all remaining ingredients. Pour over roast beef and set the timer for your slow cooker. (4 hours on High or 6-8 hours on Low)
- Once roast beef has cooked, remove from slow cooker with tongs into a serving dish. Break apart lightly with two forks and then ladle about ¼ - ½ cup of gravy over roast beef.
- Store remaining gravy in an airtight container in the refrigerator for another use.
