Ingredients

  • 2.5 Lb beef chuck boneless
  •  onion roughly chopped
  • cup beef broth low sodium
  • Tbsp balsamic vinegar 
  • Tbsp tomato paste 
  • Tbsp cooking tapioca quick
  •  garlic clove 
  • tsp seasoning italian homemade store bought
  • servings salt and pepper to taste

Equipment

  • bowl
  • whisk
  • slow cooker
  • gravy boat

Directions

  1. Place onions in slow cooker. (I used half of a red onion and half of white because I had them and they needed to be used)
  2. Place roast on top of onions.
  3. Season meat with salt and pepper.
  4. In a small bowl whisk together broth, vinegar, tomato paste, tapioca, garlic and Italian seasoning.
  5. Pour mixture over meat.
  6. Set cooker on low and cook for 8-10 hours. If youre short on time set cooker to high and cook 4-5 hours.
  7. Let cook without disturbing or checking on it; Every time you open the lid it lets all that precious hot air out. I was bummed to come home and find that my lid somehow and fallen in and created a constant leak. But it all worked out just fine in the end.
  8. Once roast is cooked and is tender to the point of falling apart transfer to serving dish.
  9. Use juice and onions in crockpot as gravy.
  10. Transfer liquid to a gravy boat.
  11. Plate it up
  12. ENJOY!!!
