This simple, yet delicious recipe surpassed my expectations! I usually skip by pot roast recipes, because I love and always go back to my Slow-Cooker Pot Roast with Porcini Mushroom Gravy.

But now that this recipe has entered my life, I will definitely be switching it up on a regular basis. This is one of the best slow-cooker recipes I’ve ever made! It is so savory, so flavorful, and so easy to make.

Add this to your meal planning this week! It not only makes a delicious pot roast paired with your favorite comforting sides to feed a crowd, but also makes a mouth-watering sandwich. If you love balsamic try this Balsamic Glaze from Evolving Table! These Slow-Cooker Beef Short Ribs from Gluten-Free Palate also look amazing. 

My family loved this on toasted Trader Joe’s GF hamburger buns with the sauce leftover from cooking for dipping. (Think french dip sandwich, made gluten-free…) If you make it as a sandwich and can eat dairy, try adding provolone cheese or blue cheese crumbles, or both!

Slow-Cooker Balsamic Roast Beef! Amazingly tender, savory roast beef easily made in the slow-cooker with just 10 min prep. Delicious as pot roast or as a french-dip type sandwich! (Gluten-Free)Every time I make a slow-cooker recipe I think that I need to make more slow-cooker recipes. As a Mom of 2 littles, the “witching hour” is a real and true phenomenon. Somehow the hours of 4:30-6:30 are always the craziest of the day, with the baby wanting to be held until bedtime, my 4-year-old wanting to get his paint set out right before dinner, the dishes needing to be done and general hungriness for all.

Slow-cooker meals make me oh so happy when the prep work and dishes are already done, the house smells great, and I know everyone will eating something delicious. I also love, love slow-cooker meals on Sunday. I can’t think of a better smell home to come home to any day of the week!

Slow-Cooker Balsamic Roast Beef {Gluten-Free}

Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 6 hrs
Total Time 6 hrs 10 mins
Servings 6 -8 servings
This is one of my all-time favorite beef slow-cooker recipes! It tastes delicious as a pot roast with mashed potatoes or your other favorite pot roast sides. It also tastes amazing as a sandwich. I like to save the liquid from cooking the beef for dipping the sandwiches. 

Ingredients

  • 1 3-4 pound boneless roast beef chuck or round roast
  • 2 tablespoons oil I use avocado oil
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups beef broth divided
  • 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons gluten-free soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 4 cloves garlic chopped

For serving: (optional)

  • Toasted GF buns
  • Provolone cheese or blue cheese crumbles or both!

Instructions 

  • In a large skillet, heat the oil until shimmering over medium-high heat. Season the outside of the roast generously with salt and pepper. Brown the roast on all sides. (You can skip this step, but I think it makes a huge difference and makes the flavor even better!)
  • Transfer the roast to the slow-cooker. There should be some brown pieces in the bottom of the skillet now. Over medium heat, pour in 1/2 cup of beef broth to deglaze the pan, scraping up the brown bits. Pour the liquid into the slow-cooker.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the slow-cooker. Cook on high for 4-6 hours or low for 6-8 hours.
  • Shred the beef into chunks with a fork, removing any pieces of fat. Serve as a pot roast with your favorite sides or on toasted buns with the liquid for dipping. Enjoy!

Notes

My favorite gluten-free buns are from Trader Joe's. Be sure to use gluten-free balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and beef broth (not all of these ingredients are GF!) in this recipe. Sometimes I cut my chuck roasts in half when I buy them and they usually end up being around 1.5lbs. If you use a smaller roast, half the sauce.
