About this Cook
My cooking tragedies
I sliced my finger open on the food processor blade preparing the appetizers for Thanksgiving 2005. I bandaged it up and went on preparing dinner. Had to get 4 stitches at midnight.

Best Braised Balsamic Pot Roast
I changed this up for the crockpot. I used 2 small beef chuck roasts and a couple random beef shanks I had in the freezer. I browned the meat in a skillet and put it in the crockpot with about 1c of beef broth. I added a couple tablespoons balsamic and red wine vinegar. About 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce and some Cholula hot sauce. Then I sauteed the onions in the meat drippings left in the skillet, once golden I added 1 can of diced tomatoes and some balsamic vinegar, and cooked until the liquid reduced some. I added it to the crockpot over and around the meat. Cooked on High for 2 hours then low for 3 hours. I removed the meat from the crockpot then cooked some fingerling potatoes and carrots, adding some beef broth to the remaining liquid. I also used some of the liquid to prepare quinoa in my rice cooker. This is a winner if you're looking for a change from the 'mushroom/onion soup' style roast. The only thing i will do different next time is add Marsala wine to the mix.

This was a great base recipe, and very easy. Next time I will add some more spices.
