Tonights dinner was awesome! I must admit though, my favorite part about pot roast is the potatoes! They're so yummy slathered in butter and a smidgen of steak sauce!
Balsamic Roast with Potatoes and Carrots
2-3 lb beef roast
3 large potatoes, peeled and quartered
6 carrots, peeled and cut in 2 inch pieces
1 lg onion, quartered
2 T oil
1/2 c balsamic vinegar
1/2 c Italian dressing
3 T Worcestershire sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 T All purpose seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Salt and pepper roast, then add to pan. Sear (brown) a couple of minutes on each side, just to keep it juicy.
Meanwhile, place potatoes, carrots, and onions in the bottom of your slow cooker. Add roast (I usually have to cut mine up)
Combine remaining ingredients and pour over roast. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 5.
(It will turn out a lot more tender if you cook it on low)
FYI: For the all-purpose seasoning I use this....
It is by far, the best seasoning ever! I use it on everything!
