Balsamic Beef Roast and Veggies

This evening after rolling in the house from work and being stuck in traffic, I was so happy to walk in and smell the dinner that had been cooking all day.   The whole house smelled so good!  It was nice to have it ready to sit and enjoy!   We love roast and generally all beef meals but try to keep them limited.   We totally enjoyed this and I added button mushrooms and baby corn for an added treat!    Delicious!

  • 3-4 pound beef roast (either chuck or bottom round)
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • cooking oil
  • 1.5 pounds red potatoes, quartered
  • 1 small white onion

  1. Sprinkle the roast with the salt and pepper. Set a large pan over medium-high heat on the stove top. Coat the pan with cooking oil. When the oil is hot, brown the meat on all sides. Place the roast into the slow cooker. Arrange the potatoes and onion around the roast, sprinkle over the garlic, oregano, and thyme.
