1 tsp garlic powder
½ tsp onion powder
1 tsp sea salt
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
½ cup high quality balsamic vinegar
2 TBS honey
1 TBS honey mustard
1 cup beef broth
1 TBS tapioca flour or arrowroot powder
Generously grease the bowl of your slow cooker. Set aside
Make the rub:
In a small bowl, mix together garlic powder, onion powder, sea salt and pepper. Set aside.
Make the sauce:
In a medium bowl whisk together balsamic vinegar, honey, mustard and beef broth. Set aside.
Putting it together:
Coat the roast in 1 TBS olive oil. Set in your slow cooker. Evenly sprinkle the roast with the rub, pressing it into the meat so it sticks.
Pour sauce over roast and turn your slow cooker onto low.
Cook on low for 8-12 hours, occasionally spooning more sauce over the roast, until it is very easily shredded with a fork.
Shred and continue cooking on low for another 1 hour.
Just before you are ready to serve, remove the meat from the sauce and strain the sauce through a fine mesh strainer into a large bowl (do NOT pour it down the drain)!
Transfer sauce to a saucepan and whisk in 1 TBS tapioca flour or arrowroot powder.
Cook on medium heat until sauce becomes thick.
Pour ¼ of the thickened sauce over the meat and save the rest for people to spoon on when you serve!
