Slow Cooked Balsamic Pot Roast
Slow Cooked Balsamic Pot Roast is perfect for an easy weekday or weekend dinner, WITH THREE DIFFERENT COOKING METHODS! Minimal work and maximum taste!
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 pounds (2 kg) chuck roast or blade roast, boneless and trimmed of excess fat
2 yellow onions chopped
8 cloves garlic smashed with the back of a spoon (or 2 tablespoons minced garlic)
1 pound (500 grams) baby potatoes, white or Yukon gold, (you may need to halve them if they are too large)
4 large carrots, cut into 2-inch pieces
2 stalks celery, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 cup reduced-sodium beef broth
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons dried thyme
1-2 teaspoons vegetable stock powder or bullion powder
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
2-4 tablespoons cornstarch (optional)
2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley, to serve
Heat oil in a large skillet or pan over high heat. Season roast with a good amount of salt and pepper. Sear on all sides until browned (about 4-5 minutes each side). Transfer roast to the bowl of a 6-quart slow cooker.
Add the onions, garlic, potatoes, carrots, celery, broth, vinegar, mustard, brown sugar, thyme, stock powder (or bullion) and salt and pepper to taste. Mix the sauce as much as you can to cover all the ingredients.
Cook on high setting for 4-5 hours, or low for 6 to 8 hours, OR until meat is tender and falling apart, and the vegetables are soft.
