  • Total Time: 4 hours 5 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


  • 2 lbs rump (chuck or round) roast
  • 1 cup chicken (beef) broth
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp raw honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce (I used Bragg’s)
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed


  1. In a large slow cooker, whisk together broth, vinegar, honey, soy sauce, mustard and garlic. Place roast in the centre, scoop a few spoonfuls of the sauce on top and cover. Cook on Low for 8 – 10 hours or on High for 4 – 5 hours.
  2. When meat is cooked, open the lid and using 2 forks shred the roast directly in the slow cooker or on a cutting board. Stir together with the sauce. Serve hot with real mashed potatoes, faux cauliflower “mashed potatoes” or on whole wheat buns.

Store: Keep refrigerated in a glass airtight container for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
