Balsamic Roasted Beef with Paprika Yams

I occasionally get lost on Pinterest. It only happens about once a month lately, but once you start looking it's so hard to stop. So much to see. 

I found a really delicious Balsamic Roasted Beef recipe on there and knew it had to be made. I've adapted the recipe a bit to not use a crock pot. It's honestly just as simple in the oven. I served this yummy beef recipe over simple yams, and recommend serving with either sour cream, Greek yogurt or horseradish sauce.

Balsamic Roasted Beef with Paprika Yams
recipe adapted from add a pinch  - serves a family

for the beef
3-4 lb boneless beef roast (a cheap, fatty cut)
1 cup low sodium broth (beef or chicken)
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp honey
7 cloves garlic (crushed)
salt and pepper
olive oil

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Take beef out of fridge 20 minutes before cooking.

Coat a Dutch oven in olive oil, and crank up the heat to medium high. Coat all sides of the beef in salt and pepper while oil gets hot. Drop beef into hot oil and let each side brown for about 3 minutes.

Remove to a plate. Lower heat to medium. Add crushed garlic and all other ingredients to pot and mix together. Bring to a simmer. Drop beef back in and cover with a lid. Pop into the oven for 4 hours. Check to see if falling apart after 4 hours. Leave in for another hour if not. 

When fall apart tender, place beef onto a cutting board. Pull off all large pieces of fat and discard. Cut or pull beef into big chunks. Add back to pot and keep heated over very low heat in gravy and juices until ready to serve.

I suggest serving with the paprika yams recipe below, lots of pan sauce and some horseradish sauce to really make it delicious!

for the paprika yams
2 medium yams (peeled and cubed)
1/2 tbsp smoky paprika
2 tbsp unsalted butter
salt and pepper

Get a pot or saucepan of water boiling and add some salt. Drop in cubed yams and let boil until tender, 5-7 minutes. Drain yams. 

Heat butter in saucepan over medium heat. Add yams, paprika and salt and pepper. Let cook for 5-7 minutes, smashing with wooden spoon as it cooks. This will result in a chunky and super flavorful dish to serve this winter. Make sure to serve with lots of pan sauce from the beef and a scoop of sour cream, Greek yogurt or horseradish sauce!
