SLOW COOKER BALSAMIC POT ROAST WITH CRANBERRY SAUCE
Tis the season to roast and toast!
I don’t know about you, but nothing comforts me more this time of year than a tender, melt in your mouth pot roast. Not only is it delicious, it is easy to make in the slow cooker and feeds a crowd. This Slow Cooker Balsamic Pot Roast with Cranberry Sauce pairs savory balsamic vinegar with the beef and then drizzles a homemade cranberry sauce over top of the beef. The Ohio Beef Council and I are here to help you make the perfect roast for your holiday celebration, and pair it with the wine that compliments it best.
As you plan out your holiday menu, keep in mind that beef and wine pair together nicely. Beef’s profound meaty, complex, rich flavor is complemented by a beverage that’s equally complex, savory and rich. Pot Roast and ribs pair well with medium red wines, like Merlot, Zinfandel and Cabernet Franc. When I made this Slow Cooker Balsamic Pot Roast with Cranberry Sauce I paired it with a Cabernet Franc, and absolutely loved them together.
