Crockpot Balsamic Beef


Try this. It’s good. It’s beef. It’s easy. I have a working fear of cooking red meat and have been known to spend 50% of my grocery time meticulously reading labels at the meat counter. I just feel like a cow has too many parts that require too many variances in cooking for me to be interested in learning.

But then there is this recipe I came across once when having meat loving guests over for dinner, and now I have made it 4 times. I can almost identify a chuck roast by sight. It isn’t fancy and won’t win me any invitations to Chopped, but by golly I now cook beef in a crockpot.

Crockpot Balsamic Beef

Salt and pepper

Add 5 lbs beef chuck roast and cook for 6-7 hours. Shred with fork and serve over mashed potatoes.
