Hunk of Meat Monday: Balsamic Beef Roast

When I wasn’t huddled around the heater trying to stay warm out here on the arctic plains this past weekend, I was catching up on my Pinterest recipe collection and cooking. I stumbled across what may be my FAVORITE beef roast recipe. Bonus: it called for ingredients I already had on hand and was super easy.

Buzzard’s Crockpot Balsamic Beef Roast

2 cups beef broth
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
~ 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
~ 2 tbsp soy sauce
~ 2 tbsp honey
~ 1 tsp red pepper flakes
~ 4 cloves garlic, chopped

Assemble all of your ingredients, including a beef roast. The amount of marinade will work for a roast up to 3-4 pounds.

Gather your ingredients

Mix together all of your ingredients. Place beef roast in your Crockpot and pour mixture over the beef. Our roast was about 1.25-1.5 pounds and it was the perfect medium-rare doneness after about 2 hours on high. If you have a larger roast (3-4) pounds, you could do 4 hours on high or probably 6 hours on low.

Pour the ingredient mixture onto your roast. Look at all that garlic, yum!

When done, place beef roast in a serving dish and spoon gravy and beef bits over the meat to moisten and infuse with deliciousness.

Robust flavor and so very delicious!
Please, for the sake of all things holy, don’t cook your beef to well-done! You only need to cook the roast to 145F!

If you try this one out, let me know how you liked it. We LOVED it – the flavor was robust and the roast stayed very moist. This will definitely be a repeat in our house.

Until next time,

  1. This looks delicous! I'm constantly looking for good Crock Pot recipes, the ones I typically try don't turn out so well.

  2. Anna – I know how you feel. So many Crockpot recipes I try turn out badly or are too complex but that's not the case with this one. It was so easy and totally delicious! Thanks for reading – would love to hear how you like it!
