Sunday Roasts were a bit of a tradition for me growing up. It didn’t matter what the meat was, I just couldn’t wait for Sunday to come. If you’re looking for something different to try for your Sunday dinner, then this pot roast is your answer. It’s also brilliant as it’s a “set and forget” recipe that you put together in the morning and come back to when it’s dinner time.
There are a few things that make this meat so addictively delicious. The first is taking the time to slice your garlic cloves and put them into your meat, then sear the beef on all sides. It doesn’t take much time to do this and will enhance the flavour of the beef as well as help the garlic spread through the meat. The other element that makes this dish amazing is the marinade. The balsamic vinegar, red wine with all the seasonings gives it that joie de vivre.
And let’s not forget about the vegetables. On this occasion I made mash potatoes instead of putting them in the pot, but you can put whatever you want with it. Carrots and potatoes are the general staple, however the best part about this is that it is completely up to you what you have with your beef. The vegetables will cook inside the crock pot, underneath the roast, soaking up all those full flavored juices.
I’m sure you are going to enjoy this dish. I like to have a nice glass of red with this and for the gravy lovers out there you can make a nice gravy with the juices or just drizzle the juices as is over your meat once it hits the plate. Enjoy!
