A few weeks ago, you saw my first attempt at a slow cooker pot roast, and yesterday was my 2nd try. This time I tried the Balsamic Pot Roast recipe from Civilized Caveman Cooking and was very pleased with the results. Because of my schedule, crock pot recipes tend to need to run a little longer than intended – mine went for close to 11 hours instead of the recommended 6-8, but the roast was very tender and had a nice flavor – not as sweet or vinegary as I had imagined it would, but rather a smooth, mild, pleasant tomato-y flavor.
I paired it with a mushroom and asparagus saute with halved cherry tomatoes, basil, garlic salt, onion powder, and the remainder of the goat cheese I had from the previous night’s meal.
E.J. gave this one 2 thumbs-up, so we can add it to our rotation of slow cooker options.
