Slow Cooker Beef with Caramelized Onions
6 cups thinly sliced sweet onions (about 1 2/3 lb)
2 tsp fresh minced garlic (I left this out)
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp each salt and pepper
1 2-lb round roast or steak, trimmed of all fat
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/3 cup beef broth
Stir together onions, garlic, sugar, thyme, salt and pepper in the bottom of a large slow cooker. Pat beef dry with clean paper towels (oops forgot to do this!!) and place on top of onions. Mix vinegar and broth together and pour over beef and onions. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 hours.
Here's how it looked in the crock pot before I served it:
Served with green beans and brown rice:
Definitely a recipe I'd try again!
