    I love balsamic!! I go crazy for a good balsamic reduction as well. My husband isn’t a fan either, but I bet even he would like this. It would be a good recipe to use up some of the beef in my freeze that he keeps bringing home. I think I will have to make this next week before I go on vacation so he has some real food in the house, besides frozen pizzas!

    • Julie Evink

      Woohooo something not to plain for Danielle to try :)

  • Lisa @ Wine & Glue

    Looks delicious Julie! I think crock potting in the summer is genius!! Way better than the whole oven on!!

    This looks wonderful! And you are so right about using the slow cooker in the summer, because who wants to cook over a hot stove in the summer! Just throw something in the slow cooker, I definitely need to dust mine off!

    Well balsamic vinegar is my favorite! Sounds like the perfect flavoring for a roast!

    • Julie Evink

      Mmmmm I think our taste buds are twins!!!

    • Joyce

      Can’t wait to try the balsamic beef roast!! Looks delish!! Does it only feed 4? Seems like a lot of meat…

  • Stephanie Majors

    This looks great! I want to try this sometime, I will print it off and save it in my recipe book. :)

  • Tatum

    Can I cook it on high for a shorter period of time?

    • Julie Evink

      I think you can but I’ve never tried it! It might not be as tender….

  • patti reed

    What cut of roast would you recommend Julie?

    • Julie Evink

      Anything really works. I usually just grab one out of my freezer!

  • Stephanie

    Had this tonight and it was absolutely WONDERFUL! Will totally be making this again.

    • Julie Evink

      So happy to hear that Stephanie!

  • Trish Butler

    You picture is amazing. I toolike Balsamic Vinegar.
    I am deffinatly going to make this.

    • Julie Evink

      Thanks Trish that’s like the biggest compliment ever well now if you tell me it tastes amazing then we’ll be set :)

      Welcome and thanks for sharing!!!

  • Jana

    I am making this right now. I am a little worried that there is too little liquid. I double checked the recipe and added the correct amounts. It doesn’t cover my 3lb. roast or the vegetables on top. Should I add more beef broth? Thanks!

    • Julie Evink

      That’s all the liquid I used. You can add more if you’d like or try basting it if you around every once in awhile!

  • Cathy

    Hi Julie, I found your site through Pinterest and you have some great recipe ideas! Can’t wait to try this one. (The crock-pot macaroni and cheese one sounds yummy too) : )

    • Julie Evink

      Glad you found me Cathy! Hope you enjoy them :)

  • nicole

    This looks great! gonna try it tomorrow night..just wondering, could I throw brussel sprouts, and or green beans in there? Would they cook well at that temp/time frame?

    • Julie Evink

      I’m not sure but I would think if you threw them in half way through that would be good! Let me know how it goes!

  • Ally

    Hello! I am trying this tonight! @Tatum, I got started late and have to cook it on high (maybe abt 4 hours). Will let everyone know how it turns out at this time/temp

  • Nikki

    Has anyone tried a vegetarian version of this? I love the recipe but don’t know what kind of fake meat I should use. Help!

  • Linda

    Though the meat & veggies are very very tasty, I found the sauce to be way too sweet. If I make it again, I will add much less brown sugar.

  • Val

    Made this tonight. I followed the directions almost exactly, the only difference was I added sliced onion. The meat was tender, the potatoes and carrots were cooked perfectly. My husband LOVED it but personally I found it a little sweet for my taste. Still a very tasty and easy recipe.

  • Rachel

    I’ve been excited to try this for a while now and I think today is the day! This may be a super silly question but I only have a 2.6lb roast, should I half the time and the measurements of everything else?

    • Julie Evink

      I think it’s fine with the normal ingredients just watch the cooking time. It might not take quite as long to cook through!

  • Jeanne

    First of all, let me state that I am not a pot roast type of person. But the flavor on this was so amazing, and I will definitely make it again.

    • Julie Evink

      Love hearing this!! Enjoy!

  • fiona

    Love this recipie, it’s in my slow cooker now AGAIN ! ready for tea tonight :)

  • Jess

    I made this this week and it was awesome! My husband is kind of picky and he asked what I did differently because it tasted so good. It got a little sweet so next time I think I’ll halve to brown sugar. Definitely will make again!

    • Julie Evink

      So glad you enjoyed it Jess!


    I really love this flavor. Was looking for something different for a venison roast—This is delicious—Thank You for sharing
    OH and SOOOOOOOO easy

    • Julie Evink

      Glad you enjoyed it Nancy!

  • Stephanie

    I’m making this right now! The only thing is as it has cooked there seems to be more and more liquid in the pot. It’s not really looking at all “charred” like your picture. Should I drain some of the liquid or just let it keep cooking? (about 6 and a half hours in)

    • Julie Evink

      I’m sorry Steph that I didn’t see this earlier. I would have just kept cooking it!

  • Karen Goodman

    I was thrilled to find a complete meal in a single crockpot since I’m in the middle of a kitchen remodel. It was actually the first of the recipes I tried that I included on my blog post with 15 crockpot recipes for a kitchen remodel (

    The recipe worked great, though I think I would have liked a cut of beef that shredded more (I ended up with slices). And a little more balsamic flavor. I love how easy it was too!

  • Kimberly W.

    Hi Julie – this recipe is to die for. I made it for a second time today and wow! I braise the meat before placing it in the crock-pot to lock-in the flavor. I add mushrooms and 1/2 a sweet onion chopped as well. YUM!

    • Julie Evink

      Great additions! I’m glad you enjoyed it!

  • Deadra

    Well I clicked on the link from Pinterest & I see no recipe for this at all …

    • Julie Evink

      Did you see the “Click her for Recipe” Button?

  • Colleen Bruns

    I was wondering if you put those baby potatoes in the entire time and how did they turn out? We’re they mushy at all? Thanks so much, I wanted to make this tomorrow.

    • Julie Evink

      Yes I do! And no they aren’t mushy for me at all.
