Balsamic Pot Roast

Does anyone else love the idea of utilizing the slow cooker when entertaining for large crowds? It's such a life saver, I've done it many times, see this post and this post. For Mother's Day I picked a slow cooker pot roast recipe that had gotten rave reviews and it was yum.

Seriously, slow cooker meals are so easy too, just dump and cook, ANYONE can handle this. 

I think next time I make this I want to use a raspberry or cherry balsamic, but regualr old baslamic works just fine too. I would DEFINTILY only cook this on low and not the high option though.


Balsamic Pot Roast - Add a Pinch

Balsamic Pot Roast from Add a Pinch
Serves: 6-8
  • 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.


  1. I can't wait to make this! You know I LOVE my slow cooker! XO

  2. What type of slow cooker do you have? Trying to decide which one to buy!

  3. Morgs, you would LOVE, made it again last night! And Laura I have an All-Clad slow cooker and have been very happy with it, they now make one with a non-stick insert and I would recommend that one.
