Balsamic Braised Pot Roast
Total TimePrep: 40 min. Bake: 2-1/2 hours
Everyone I've made this for loved it. I like smaller cuts of celery and extra carrots. Perfect recipe. Balsamic lover here. Makes everything so flavorful!
Holy basalmic vinegar, Batman!!! There’s plenty of it here! I like what what did to the meat, but did NOT like what it didn’t with the veg or gravy. It was too pervasive throughout the dish. The meat was tender and so delicious! The veggies were perfectly cooked. The braising liquid didn’t over evaporate and there’s was plenty for gravy. The idea behind this is fantastic, but unless you live for basalmic vinegar, you have to back that stuff down. I think, were I to make this again, I’d use like a tablespoon and go with my family’s more customary flavors such as Worcestershire and soy sauce. Were it not for the overpowering basalmic flavor, this would get 5 stars.
I made this pot roast for a dinner party. My guest and I enjoyed it! The balsamic vinegar added just the right amount of sweet and tart.
For Two (with some adjustments):brown chuck, both sides, under broiler, saute vegetables for about 8 minutes in large pot, add liquid and browned meat on top of sauted vegetables. Cook 325 for 3 hours. All of the liquid had evaporated after 3 hours so watch your oven pot during the last hour of cooking.Chuck: 1/2 lb chuck.Vegetables: 8oz mushrooms sliced, 1/2 onion diced, 8 baby carrots whole, 2 stalks celery diced, 5 garlic cloves sliced.Liquid: I cup water with 1 teaspoon beef bouillon, 4 Tablespoons white wine, 1 Tablespoon Balsamic vinegar. Served with rolls if you want a carbohydrate. Pass Horseradish Cream: 3 Tablespoons plain Greek yogurt, or sour cream and 2 teaspoons Golds prepared Horseradish. We have added this to our rotation.

We did NOT like this. The balsamic vinegar made everything way too sweet. I should have known better than to put in the full 1/2 cup that was called for. Disappointed...
It had me at balsamic vinegar. What a delicous and temder roast. I never can get my husband to eat sweet potatoes unless they are with this dish.
We really enjoyed this recipe. I added some fresh mushrooms and baby red potatoes. The next time I might cut down on the balsamic by just a smidge. I will make this recipe many times over.
I loved it, but my kids did not like it at all. I thought it had really good flavor and loved the sweet potatoes in it. I doubled the sweet potato and didn't use any turnips.
Good twist to a traditional classic! My husband really liked the sweet potato addition. One thing I changed was I slow cooked this recipe in the crock pot for 8 hours on low.
