Slow Cooker Balsamic Pot Roast – Melt in your mouth, tender Balsamic Pot Roast prepared in the slow cooker with potatoes and carrots!
Holy freaking flavors, right up in here! 👆👆👆
Hey, YOU! Happy Sunday! Thank you for stopping by! 😘
Have you ever seen such beauty in a piece of meat?! Prolly not. Honestly, I think I may have officially found our favorite pot roast recipe. No, joke. It’s all in the marinade. The balsamic-vinegar-seasonings-concoction is truly scrumptious, you’ll want to pick up the bowl and slurp it up.
Their Balsamic Vinegar is aged in oak casks, and because of the aging, this vinegar is much thicker than other balsamic vinegars, and the oak gives it a distinctive undertone.
To add, in the spirit of the Holidays, STAR Fine Foods launched a Facebook timeline contest encouraging readers to share a comment on their post with a special memory they have of the Holiday Season with the hashtag #LoveLoveMemories. The promotion will run until the 15th of December and then one lucky winner will be randomly selected to win the prize of a Red KitchenAid® Ultra Power Plus 4.5 Qt Tilt-Head Stand Mixer along with a variety of STAR and Cara Mia Products to help continue making those special holiday memories!
If you’ve been with me for a while, you definitely know that I love using my crock pot, but using it for bigger cuts of meat is a new thing for me and I regret that I waited so long to try it out.
The best part about said comfort food is that this Slow Cooker Balsamic Pot Roast barely takes any time at all. I mean, in as far as preparing it. Like, 10 to 12 minutes. Unless you want to sear it before popping it inside the crock pot. In that case, you’ll need an extra 15-ish minutes.
OH! And let’s talk about the other BEST part: the carrots and potatoes! Those also get cooked right inside the crock pot, underneath the rump roast, soaking up all those full flavored juices.
Second. This is the perfect meal for your Holiday dinner, but I don’t know if I can even make it to Christmas to try it again. IT’S SO GOOD. Perfectly seasoned, JUICY, garlicky… very garlicky… and sweet and savory and bit tangy. I cannot say enough good things about it.
What I CAN say is that you need to make it and try it for yourself, a.s.a.p. M’kayyy? Good. 🙌
Have a great Sunday!! XO
