  1. Put a liner in your crockpot.
  2. Take your meat and put it in the crockpot fat side down.
  3. Add the onions...
  4. ...the garlic (minced fresh and jarred both shown here)...
  5. ...the broth...
  6. ...the balsamic vinegar...
  7. ...the tamari...
  8. ... and the salt and pepper.
  9. Cover that baby up, set the slow cooker on "Low," and let it cook at least 8 hours.
  10. Remove the roast from crockpot and clean of fat if desired for serving.
  11. Blend the remaining juice in the crockpot with an immersion blender for your gravy. Note: the blender may catch the liner. If so, just dump the juice from the liner into the pot and blend away. It'll still be pretty easy to clean. 🙂 DO NOT LEAVE YOUR BLENDER IN THE POT IF THE POT IS STILL ON. I melted my that way.
Recipe Notes

February 28, 2016

Maura makes this and it is freakishly delicious every time: tender, savory, perfect. I made this for the first time for Patty, Kathleen and Bea and it was met with approval.

NOTES: I made a 1 1/2-sized batch and it needed significantly longer to cook. I put it in at 8 am and at 4 pm, it was cooked, but still in pretty firm shape. I turned the slow cooker up to high and gave it another 2 1/2 hours (until 6:30), and it was great. It's done when it's browned on top and falling apart tender, shredding very easily with a fork. I served it with boiled potatoes and carrots: I probably could have tucked the carrots in to cook with it, although probably not for the whole time.

I used two pieces of meat because I couldn't find one that was 4-5 pounds. They were slightly different cuts:



The flatter cut one (the bottom image) cooked quickly and was more tender in the end. I'd definitely choose that cut again, although both tasted great.
