Slow Cooker Beef with Onions


  • 1 T EVOO
  • 1 large yellow onion, quartered and sliced
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless beef rump roast
  • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 c Balsamic Vinegar, or more to taste
  • 3 T tomato paste
  • 1/2 c water
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • Drizzle EVOO into the bottom of a slow cooker, and arrange half the onion slices over the EVOO. Lay the beef roast on top of the onion, and sprinkle the rest of the onion slices and the garlic around the roast.
  • Sprinkle the Balsamic Vinegar, tomato paste, and the water around the roast. Cover the slow cooker, set to High and cook until the meat is tender, about 6 hours.
