Effortless Balsamic Beef Delight

Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Cooking Time: 6-8 hours (low) or 4 hours (high)

Servings: 4-6


  • 2 pounds of beef chuck roast
  • 1 cup of beef broth
  • 2 minced garlic cloves

  1. Place the beef chuck roast snugly inside a generously greased slow cooker.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together beef broth, minced garlic, brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, rosemary, thyme, salt, and pepper. Once fully blended, pour this aromatic mixture over the beef.
  3. Seal your slow cooker and allow time to work its magic. You can choose to set it on high for 4 hours or opt for a longer, slower simmer at low for 6-8 hours.
