Balsamic Beef

The Hubby and I are always up for a good pot roast.  So when he was showing he was willing to have balsamic (a recent development), I made this immediately.  We both loved the flavor; the balsamic really gives it a depth and smokiness.

If you don't believe that we love pot roast, you should try Chipotle-Coffee Pot Roast, Garlic Pepper Pot Roast, Sauerbraten (German pot roast),and Pot Roast Paprikash.
