Slow Cooker Balsamic Glazed Roast Beef

I don’t know about you guys, but every Sunday my mom would make a mean roast. It was something I looked forward to every week.

The juicy, tender beef, with the soft, flavorful carrots and potatoes…doesn’t get much better than this!

This recipe in particular is a little different with the balsamic, but so so good!


  • 1 Tbsp Oil
  • 3 pounds Chuck
  • 1 Large Onion, sliced
  • 4 Cloves Garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Red pepper flakes
  • 1 CUP Beef broth
  • 1/2 CUP Balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp Soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp Brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 pound Baby carrots
  • 1 pound Mini potatoes
  • 2 Tbsp Cornstarch + 2 tablespoons water


  1. Heat the oil in a large pan over medium-high heat, add the beef and brown on all sides and set aside.
  2. Add the onions and cook until tender, about 2-3 minutes, before adding the garlic and red pepper flakes and cooking until fragrant, about a minute.
  3. Place the beef, onions, broth, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, carrots and potatoes in a slow cooker, cover and cook on high for 3-5 hours.
  4. Remove the carrots, potatoes and beef and slice the beef.
  5. Skim any fat from the cooking juices, place it in a sauce pan, bring to a simmer, add the mixture of the cornstarch and water and cook until the glaze has thickened a bit
  6. Poor over prepared plate.
  7. Enjoy!
