Slow Cooker Balsamic Onion Roast

This roast was amazing, I wanted thirds on this one! It was really easy and yummy and SO worth the extra steps at the beginning.

Slow Cooker Balsamic Onion Roast Beef

2 Tbsp Oil (your choice, I use olive)
3-4 lb Beef Roast (your choice of cut)
3 Onions, cut in rings
1 cup Beef Stock 
1/2 cup Balsamic Vinegar
2 Tbsp Tomato Paste
2 Tbsp Brown Sugar (optional)

Heat oil in a skillet. Brown all sides of Roast, nice and brown to add colour and flavour. Remove from pan and place in slow cooker. Add onion rings to slow cooker. Deglaze hot pan using beef stock. Reduce stock to about 1/2 cup then add balsamic vinegar, tomato paste, and brown sugar (optional). Stir until combined and heated. Pour over Beef.
Cook on low for 5-7 hours (depending on desired "doneness" and size).
Remove meat and wrap in foil to let rest while you prepare the sauce. Pour sauce and onions into a skillet and reduce sauce until it thickens (about 5-10 minutes). Pour over meat before serving or serve as "gravy". 

Amazing flavour and a nice change from the traditional roast beef.
