I love my crockpot. It really is such an awesome invention and makes cooking so much easier, especially if you work all day long. There is nothing better than coming home to a hot meal all ready to be eaten with minimal work involved. Ah, the crockpot.
I probably don't use the crockpot as much as I could but I do have a few old faithful recipes that I love to make in it. One of them being this amazing Balsamic Roast Beef recipe that I came across on Pinterest a couple months back. It is easy to make and tastes amazing, a must try. Seriously. Go home and make yourself this roast beef.
One thing that I love about this recipe is that I always have all the ingredients needed. Most of them within arms reach, like my garlic and balsamic vinegar.
Instead of canned beef broth, I use this concentrated version of it. It's called Better Than Bouillon Beef Base and I love it. You buy this little jar of it and it keeps in the fridge for a long time. You then mix a teaspoon of the base into 1 cup of boiling water and voila, beef broth! Easy peasy.
The pictures of this meal kind of suck since I'm always in a rush in the mornings to get the meal in the crockpot and then usually by night time I'm just too hungry to be bothered with pictures. But I did try and snap a few of this amazing roast beef.
It's so moist and tender and full of flavour. I like to serve it with garlic mashed potatoes, green beans and corn. So good!
So what about you? Do you love your crockpot too? Do you have any "old faithful" recipes you make in it? Care to share any?
