Great crock pot recipe! balsamic cherry beef roast for the slow cooker - Rae Gun Ramblings

I had some frozen cherries that I used but I bet it would work just as good with canned or fresh cherries. The recipe is written to make 2 large servings since we’re really bad at eating leftovers but you can just increase the recipe if you have more people to feed.

My favorite way to serve this is with some yummy and quick wilted spinach and mashed potatoes. I make sure to server it with the cooked down cherries and veggies and spoon some of the cooking juices over the meat when you serve it.
