Slow Cooker Balsamic Beef Pot Roast is tender and full of flavor!
Hello! I have a delicious beef roast recipe for you today. I made a version of this a few months ago but something wasn’t right, an idea came to me last week to try mixing balsamic with Italian dressing. What difference that made in this recipe and gave it a bit more moisture as well.
This Balsamic Beef Pot Roast was a delicious dinner and I love the long cooking time, it will be my go to on busy day. My husband made a beef sandwich for his leftovers the next day, he loved it. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family did. Have a great weekend.
