Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Cook beef in Dutch oven until browned on all sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  3. Mix brown sugar, salt, mustard, and black pepper together in a small bowl; sprinkle evenly over the roast. Arrange potatoes, carrots, and onion in the Dutch oven around the roast. Pour vinegar and water over the vegetables.
  4. Place a cover on the Dutch oven and put in preheated oven. Cook until the roast is hot in the center, and just turning from pink to grey, about 4 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 150 degrees F (65 degrees C).

I cut back a bit on the vinegar and brown sugar (we like things less sweet these days) and added some beef broth along with the water. I had about half a bag of pearl onions in the freezer, so I added them in addition to the sliced onion (we love pot roast veggies!). Cooked in the slow cooker for 5 hours on high, and it was perfectly cooked, meat falling apart. I took out the veggies and meat, made some gravy, and then added all back into the gravy, turned to warm until we were ready to eat. I garnished with some chopped parsley for a little pop of color; it was a nice Fall meal.
