How to Make the Best Balsamic Beef
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. How easy is that?
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. It is so tender, it practically falls part! 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!

Just made this last night. It is scrumptious!! I only cooked it 6.5 hrs on low(2,5lb) and it was a little chewy. I would recommend cooking full 8hrs or maybe longer if you have a larger roast. You might want to increase the sauce if you do a larger roast also, You don’t want to scrimp on the sauce, I could lap it up like soup! There has been a lot of discussion about what balsamic vinegar to use. I used Costco’s and it was great!
Peggy, I would check to see if the roast would break apart easily before removing from the slow cooker. If it doesn’t, I would then cook it a little longer. This would prevent taking the roast out to serve before it is really tender. I love the sauce this makes, too, and always have enough if cooking a 3-4 pound roast.
