Bottom roast, brown sugar bourbon bacon caramelized onion balsamic something?


I want to make a roast. Here's what I have on hand-
Brown sugar bourbon apple cider vinegar marinade
Red wine
Cherrywood smoked bacon
Caramelized onion balsamic spread

Any ideas? I really want to use up some/all of this stuff.
I plan to roast in the oven not in the crock pot. I'd like a little bit of a sear/crust.

Thanks in advance!

  1. I'd marinate the roast in the marinade, then sear before putting in the oven for a low-and-slow roast.

    Drink the wine.

    save everything else for a different meal -- more is not always better.

      Could cut the roast and place the garlic in the slots. Or make a bacon garlic red wine reduction marmalade to go with the vinegar marinaded roast.

        You could, but you shouldn't. -- that's just way, way too many things going on in one poor pot roast.

        It's 2 lbs. What temp and time do you think?
