It’s that time of year when Comfort Food is the best. But often times, we don’t have time to make a big pot of Chicken and Noodles or put together a pan of Lasagna. So that’s when our Slow Cooker comes in handy. We want a nice comforting meal for our family but just don’t have the time to mess with it.
With about 10 minutes of prep work, you can have this flavorful Beef Roast in the Slow Cooker. At the end of the day you have a pot full of moist beef, add some Mashed Potatoes and a veggie for a wonderful meal. The best part though, you will have leftovers for another meal.

I have a little confession – I really am not a Beef Roast fan, but I really did love this! I think in the past, the recipes we have tried just didn’t have enough flavor for me. And if the roast was dry, it was even worse. But this roast is not only flavorful, it’s moist too. It literally feel apart when I took it out of the Slow Cooker pot.
To make the Beef Roast so flavorful and moist, we added Nakano Roasted Garlic Rice Vinegar, Soy Sauce, Brown Sugar and Cumin – simple ingredients yet so flavorful. Nakano Rice Vinegars offer a healthy alternative to condiments loaded in calories and fat and adds delicious tang with far fewer calories to stay healthy in the new year. They have only has 20 calories per splash and are low fat and gluten-free.
We served the Beef Roast without shredding it for dinner. Then with the leftovers, we made Shredded Beef Lettuce Wraps. You could also pile the beef on a sandwich bun for a great sandwich.
Getting two or even three meals out of this Beef Roast is the key to saving money and time.
