Balsamic Roast ... Crockpot Style

I made those awesome stuffed peppers again the other night and thought to myself how expensive of a meal it was because I BOUGHT the roast beef instead of making it. I don't know how to make a roast beef, so heck, may as well google Pinterest it and see whats out there ...

Which led me to this recipe.

Yeah. Sort of off track but yummy enough that I had it in the crock pot on that lovely, noisy Sunday afternoon.

We were having our master bath shower redone ... it's been having slight mold issues for a while and Hubby was insisting that it was coming from the backside ... he was right. I hope I never have to see something like that ever again (it actually makes me certain that's what my sinus issues were at night! I've not had anything since!) ...

So anyways, because the house was so busy and the noise was just grating on my nerves, I figured a crock pot meal would keep me from bitching at begging Hubby to take me out for dinner  ...

I had a sirloin roast, almost 3 lbs, in the freezer. Just dumped it in the crock pot, frozen hunk of meat that it was ... That thing was $18 originally, which about made me keel over when I saw the price of it ... thankfully it was a mark down and a beautiful hunk of meat.

Here's what you need:

3 to 4 lb hunk of beef (any sort will do, chuck roast is acceptable!)
1 cup of beef broth
1/2 cup balsamic (hey, do me a favor, don't buy the cheap, watery stuff, buy some mid grade stuff, it matters!)
1 tbs honey
1 tbs soy sauce
1 tbs Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
4 cloves of garlic, chopped

Ready for the instructions? Measure all in a large measuring cup (I used a 2 cup glass), mix, and dump over the roast.

Put on the lid.

Set it for low for 6 to 8 hours.

Walk away and forget about it til dinner time.
