Here are a few tips for making this the best Slow Cooker Balsamic Roast Beef:
- Make sure to season your roast before adding all your ingredients.
- Once you start cooking, don’t remove the lid during the cooking process.
- Make sure to add enough liquid (other than water) to flavor the roast and keep it moist.
- Add bold flavors to enhance the flavor of the roast and that you will enjoy eating.
- Shred roast beef and serve over mashed potatoes or make into sandwiches.
- Reserve all the juices left in the slow cooker to pour over like gravy or use to dip your sandwich into.
One of my favorite things to make with the left over roast beef is roast beef sliders. They are so simple to make and if you keep the remaining juices from the slow cooker it makes a great dipping sauce for the sandwiches.
