Italian Balsamic Pot Roast

Italian Balsamic Pot Roast

Recipe created by our partner Shadi HasanzadeNemati

With a nice cut of round roast, it’s so easy to make a delicious slow cooker meal with minimal preparation.

This Italian inspired pot roast is flavored with quality balsamic vinegar, rosemary and thyme. Honey and garlic helps to balance the flavors. To make this an all-around complete meal, I added some potatoes to the roast to cook in the juices.

Every bite of this dish is packed with so much flavor and the leftovers are even better! 


Onion, sliced
1 large
Carrots, cut into large pieces
Dried rosemary
1 tsp
Dried thyme
1 tsp
1 tsp
Balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup
2 Tbsp
Garlic, minced
6 cloves
Beef broth
1 cup
Olive oil
2 Tbsp
Baby potatoes, washed but not peeled
1 lb


  • Pan
  • Slow cooker


Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Season the round roast with salt and pepper on both sides. Sear the meat in the pan for only 4-5 minutes on each side so it gets brown (we don’t want it to cook). 

Place the meat in the slow cooker. Place the onion, carrots, and potatoes in the slow cooker as well. In a bowl mix rosemary, thyme, salt, balsamic vinegar, honey, garlic, and beef broth and pour it over everything. Close the lid and cook for 8 hours on low.
