Crockpot Balsamic Beef Recipe


  Crockpot Balsamic Beef Follow Me on Pinterest I love a good crockpot recipe. One that doesn’t take lots of prep and doesn’t call for a million ingredients. Most importantly, one that ends with delicious food. This, my friends, is one of those recipes.

This Crockpot Balsamic Beef Recipe takes less than five minutes to put together. The recipe calls for a fair amount of balsamic vinegar, but the long cooking time really mellows it out. So, you end up with super tender and juicy beef that is delicious served over egg noodles, rice, or potatoes.

    I know I’m about a year late on this post, but I was just wondering if you’ve ever added in veggies with the roast? Carrots, potatoes, onions, etc. if so do you add more liquid? Thanks!

      I haven’t added veggies with this recipe, but I have with other recipes, and I don’t add more liquid with the veggies. Hope that helps! =)

      I’ve never tried it frozen in this recipe. I’ve put frozen chicken breast in with other recipes, but I’m not sure with a larger cut of meat if it will work out right or not. If you try it, please let me know how it works out!

      It’s a liquid seasoning that replicates the smoky flavor that you’d get with grilling or smoking food. It’s usually sold with the seasonings, and it comes in a small bottle. If you have any other questions, let me know!
