It’s Meaty Monday! I know Mondays can be a drag since the weekend is over, but I hope Meaty Mondays make them a little better. I’ve been loving this series because I do cook a lot of meat dishes. I’m trying to incorporate more simple meals back into my blog. When I first started blogging, I lived alone. When you live alone, easy meals are key! Spending three hours in the kitchen to just eat alone feels kind of sad sometimes. Now that I am in Oklahoma, I’m close to my family who is almost always up for trying my dishes. While I love having taste testers, it has meant exploring some more complicated recipes I never wanted to cook when it was just for me.
I’m working on developing more recipe with less than 7 ingredients. Plus salt and pepper because everyone should already have those! This balsamic beef contains only 5 ingredients but comes out packed with flavor! This is a great meal to put in your crockpot before work, and it will be ready by dinner. Serves 4.
- 2 lbs boneless chuck roast
- 2/3 cup beef broth
- 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1 tbls coconut aminos
- 1 tsp liquid smoke
- Place roast in bottom of your crockpot.
- Pour all other ingredients on top.
- Cook on low for 8-10 hours. Mine was done after 9 hours.
- You will know it is done when it basically falls apart with a fork.
- Shred then cook for 30 more minutes.
