Holy freaking flavors, right up in here! And you are going to love this all-in-one-pot amazing pot roast dinner!

Hey, YOU! Happy Sunday! Thank you for stopping by! 

This post is sponsored by STAR FINE FOODS.Thank YOU, friends, for supporting the brands that make Diethood possible!

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.

Just as in my Garlic and Rosemary Balsamic Roasted Pork, for almost all my balsamic marinades, I turn to my go-to STAR Balsamic Vinegar of Modena (Gold Edition).

BALSAMIC VINEGAR FOR MARINADES

Balsamic Vinegar of Modena is best for marinades because it 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.

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.

If I’m not mistaken, I’m pretty sure it all started with that Crock Pot Honey Lemon Chicken Recipe, then it was the Turkey Breast, and now this pot roast.

HOW TO MAKE POT ROAST IN THE SLOW COOKER

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.

    love your recipes

  2. How can the WW SmartPoints be figured when there’s no listing of how many servings this is? Could we have that information, please? The recipe looks amazing, but I, like others, have never made a pot roast in the slow cooker without at least a cup of liquid…

  3. Colleen

    Oh My Gosh!!!!! Mine wasn’t as pretty as yours but it was fantastic!!! I added about 1/2 cup of water extra, but WOW!!! So good!! Thank you for sharing the awesomeness!!!

  4. Britt

    I prepared the recipe exactly as stated- does it come out dry? I am contemplating having my roommate add water or maybe beef stock.

  5. Looks amazingly delish! I just bought a pork loin roast and I’m searching for a yummy recipe. Do you think this would be as delicious using pork? Crock Pot recipes for pork are difficult to find.

    1. Jim

      Check out Emeril’s Cochon de Lait recipe. The pork is fantastic and his slaw and creole mayo really help make for an amazing po’boy

  6. Andrea

    I made this and I was concerned about the lack of liquid or broth and it didn’t turn out quite right. My husband said it was sizzeling half way through so he added broth! GRR but I’m just wondering did your fall apart or did you cut the roast up? Thanks

    1. Kelly A.

      Andrea, I worried about the same thing! I once ruined a large roast by not including enough liquid and wound up with jerky.

      This time, I figured I would just add some water up to the level of the vegetables. The melting fat would also contribute but at least the roast would steam instead of dehydrating and I’d be assured the potatoes would be done after seven hours.

  7. Joan Abodeely Hagopian

    This pot roast doesn’t only look good, it tastes amazing!! We tried it today for the first time after seeing the recipe on Face Book, the flavors, the tender meat, everything was delicious. This recipe will be used many times when I want to impress my guests on how I made a perfect pot roast!! I signed up on your website and I look forward to trying many of your tempting recipes. Keep up the good work and keep the recipes coming. Joan in Florida
