I don’t know if any meal or smell can transport me to childhood as quickly as Pot Roast made in a slow cooker..
It’s just one of those meals – the ones where the mere whiff of it sends my memory tumbling and twirling and sets my senses afire.
The scent of savory roast, sweet onions, tender baby carrots and earthly potatoes are one of the scents that define my childhood and are the true definition of comfort food for me.
Unfortunately I’m not a child anymore, and Nathan and I are trying to eat healthier – which means more veggies, more lean meat and a lot less carbs!
When I saw this Balsamic and Onion Pot Roast recipe on Kaylyn’s Kitchen – I immediately printed it out and flew to the store to buy the roast.
I made a few adjustments to her recipe – which she made as part of the Phase One of the SB Diet – so if you’re SB-ing it… go check her recipe out!
I really think that the onions are one of the keys to this pot roast
I used sweet white onions which I think pair beautifully with the rich beef stock and the slight tang of the balsamic vinegar.
Nathan and I have decided that this might be the best pot roast we’ve ever had and that’s saying a mouthful.
This recipe is so simple and delicious.
Beef Stock, Balsamic Vinegar, a bit of tomato paste, good quality lightly marbled roast, onions and baby carrots…
This is one of the healthiest, lightest, most melt in your mouth delicious pot roasts that I’ve ever had
Sweet, Savory, Juicy, Tangy and absolutely Melt In Your Mouth Delicious
This post roast is perfect for a cool fall day, a busy sports filled day or just because you enjoy walking into a house that smells like a little bit of heaven.
Here are a few of my favorite recipes from last week’s linky:
