Original review: I followed the recipe exactly, including the cut of meat. It resulted in a moist and tender roast that was very good, but not 5 star good. I was worried that the balsamic would over power the entire dish, but with the long cooking time, it did not. You could tell it was there and some of the flavor of that came through, but not too much. If I was to make again, I would add in some carrots and celery and would cut the vinegar by half. Update: I raised this recipe to 5 stars based on the left-overs. The left-overs are absolutely fantastic and I will probably make this again as written just for them.

Made for Recipe Group. I used an English cut roast for this. Shredded it at the end of cooking time and put back in the juices(it was so tender it was falling apart). I made sandwiches with provolone and a nice sub bun. Good flavor, but lacking some extra zip in there for me. I added a little worcestershire, some more garlic powder and a little shake of hot sauce. Really easy recipe though, and the more onions the better! Thanks for the recipe.

Did not care for it. The Balsamic was too overpowering.
