Why spend lavishly on a night out when you can make something just as good (if not better!) right from the comfort of home? This one is sure to impress a first date, the in-laws, or save for a night to surprise your honey. Recipe from civilizedcavemancooking.com.
- Generously season both sides of the roast with Salt, Black Pepper, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Smoked Paprika.
- Heat the coconut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and sear each side of the roast for a few minutes
- Place sliced onions in the bottom of the slow cooker and put the seared meat on top of the onions.
- Combine balsamic vinegar and tomato sauce in a small bowl and pour over meat in the crock pot.
- Add filtered water and white wine to the hot skillet to de-glaze it, scraping up the brown bits on the pan.
- Pour the deglazed sauce mixture on top of the meat in the slow cooker.
- Cover & Crock on Low for 6-8 hours.

What can I use in place of white wine?
Adrienne, You could use some beef broth instead of the white wine. Happy Crocking!
What did you serve this with?
Hello Melinda, There are so many options to serve with this roast… veggie of your choice and a nice crisp salad! YUM!
At the end of cooking can the sauce be put over say egg noodles?
Absolutely Lisa… Make this recipe your own! Enjoy and Happy Crocking!
I was really excited about making this but my meat turned out a little tough:( I cooked on low for 6 hours. The flavor was good tho. Thanks for the recipe!
Sorry the results were not what you expected Monica. Next time, you could try adding more cooking liquids or cooking for a shorter amount of time.
Hi. I saw this on Facebook and instantly wanted to try it. I’m a soup lover, especially of beef soup. I find the store bought ones too salty. I have a few questions:
I’m curious of the tomato sauce and 1/2 cup of water. Does it really become a beefy liquid like in the picture?
Can I deglaze with just water? I’m a red wine drinker so I never have white wine at home.
(I love that there is balsamic vinegar. It’s my secret ingredient to pasta sauces).
Thanks for your question, Cyn! Yes, you should be able to get a very flavorful, rich broth by mixing the tomato sauce and balsamic together. Pour that over the roast and then add a bit more water to the crock to make sure it stays very moist. It’s okay if you don’t have the wine–it should still turn out very well! Thanks, and Happy Crocking!
Hey! Great recipes! Have any suggestions for replacing the tomato sauce.. I don’t tolerate tomatoes very well and sooo many crock pot recipes call for it! Thanks in advance for your response 🙂
Hi Danielle, I actually did some research for you, and got this from our friends at Taste of Home, hope it helps: In small amounts, you can certainly just omit the tomatoes and replace the missing liquid with chicken or beef broth or other liquids already in the recipe. You could also replace the tomatoes with other veggies like bell peppers, onion or summer squash—perhaps just increasing veggies already used in the recipe. For recipes where tomatoes take center stage, like chili, there isn’t much you can do to replace them. In those cases, your best bet would be to… Read more »
I have never used coconut oil, can I replace it? Thanks!
Hi Jeni – you can use any oil you’d like however, coconut oil is preferred if you are following the Paleo diet. Happy Crocking!
