My family loved this recipe!  It was super simple to make!  This recipe can be used in a Crock Pot or an Instant Pot. I just bought an Instant Pot a month ago and love it!  I threw some carrots into the pot too.


2 lb top round or rump roast
1 large sweet onion, sliced
8 ounces tomato sauce
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp white wine
2 tbsp olive oil
For Rub: Salt, Smoked Paprika, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, and Black Pepper

Season your roast on both sides generously with the rub listed above. Heat your coconut oil in a large pan over medium-high heat, once warm sear each side of your roast for 3-4 minutes. Place your sliced onions in the bottom of your crock pot and put your seared meat on top of the
onions. Combine your balsamic vinegar and tomato sauce in a bowl and mix well, then pour over your meat in the crock pot. Add your water and white wine to your pan. Place the lid on, set to low and cook for 6-8 hours in a crock pot.  I used my Instant Pot this time. Just choose the setting to Meat/Stew and within an hour dinner will be served.
