So what is in this mouthwatering slow-cooked balsamic beef roast? It starts off with your favorite beef pot roast. Onions and garlic are added to give the sauce the base of flavor. Beef broth is poured in to keep is extra moist and to create a sauce. Balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, and Worcestershire sauce (say that 10 times fast. Actually, say it one time fast. That word gets me every single time) are added to give the sauce depth of flavor. The honey brings the sweetness and the red chili flakes bring a very mild heat.
To make the Balsamic Roast Beef in a slow cooker:
Place roast beef in slow cooker. Add the ingredients and give it a good stir. Cook it low and slow for 6-8 hours. Keeping it on the low setting is key to get really tender beef. After beef is done cooking, shred the beef with two forks. Pour sauce over beef to keep it moist and full of rich flavor.
To make Honey Balsamic Beef in Instant Pot:
The beauty of the instant pot is how quickly dinner can be on the table. To cook a 3 lb. roast, turn on the instant pot to pressure cook on high. Set for 60 minutes for a 3-pound roast (70 minutes for a 4-lb roast). Add all ingredients. Place lid on the instant pot and turn to the locked position and ensure the vent is set to the sealed position. When the cooking time is complete, let the instant pot de-pressurize for 10 minutes. After 1- minutes, turn vent to the venting release position allow the steam to vent before removing the lid. Remove roast from pot and shred. Cover with sauce to keep it nice and moist.
