I make this with venison, and it turns out so tender and delicious. Is similar to 'sauerbraten,' but without days of marinating! Serve over pasta or potatoes, and a salad on the side.

Directions

  1. Drizzle olive oil into the bottom of a slow cooker, and arrange half the onion slices over the oil. Lay the beef roast on top of the onion, and sprinkle the rest of the onion slices and the garlic around the roast. Sprinkle the balsamic vinegar, tomato paste, and water around the roast. Cover the slow cooker, set to High, and cook until the meat is tender, about 6 hours. Shred the meat into bite-size pieces with two forks, and season with salt and pepper. Serve with the juices from the slow cooker.

Generally weird taste and I like Balsamic. Really watery sauce and even with a 2 lbs roast, 6 hours was way to long and made the meat tough and stringy.

Thank you for this recipe! Although I used sundried tomato( in the jar) insted of tomato paste, Beef buillion mixed into water, also I sliced roast into 1 1/2 inch. thick or so before placed into cooker. I served this over baked potato(peeled) weadges and everybody loved it!

This was very vinagery. Didn't really like it at all. My boyfriend added some white wine to it and said it made it a little better, but I don't think I will make this again.
