Well, here ya go…

You can produce this dish in one of two ways: 1). In the slow cooker on low, for about 8 or 9 hours, or 2). In the oven, for about 4 hours.

In either case, you will have a fork-tender roast packed with great flavor.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Amazing Honey & Bourbon Beef Roast

Step-by-Step

  • 1PREP/PREPARE
  • 2THE ROAST
  • 3Gather your ingredients.
  • 4Place a rack in the lower position, and preheat the oven to 275f (135c)
  • 5Rub the roast down with the oil, and then sprinkle with salt & pepper, to taste.
  • 6Place a pot over medium-high heat, and sear the roast on all sides, about 2 minutes, per side.
  • 7Remove the roast, and reserve.
  • 8THE BRAISING LIQUID
  • 9Gather your ingredients.
  • 10Add the ingredients to the pot, and reduce heat to medium.
  • 11Chef's Note: Use a wooden spoon to scrape the fonds off the bottom of the pot, and incorporate them into the braising liquid.
  • 12Bring up to a simmer, while stirring to incorporate all the ingredients.
  • 13Chef's Tip: Since this braising liquid contains a lot of bourbon, when it comes to a simmer, you might want to avoid the fumes... unless you want to get drunk.
  • 14Return the roast to the pot.
  • 15Tightly cover and place in the oven until fork tender, about 4 hours.
  • 16Chef’s Note: If you are doing this in a slow cooker, add the seared roast, and other ingredients to the bowl of your slow cooker, and then set on low for 8 or 9 hours.
  • 17PLATE/PRESENT
  • 18Remove from the pot (or slow cooker), thickly slice, then plate with your favorite veggie and/or starch, and drizzle on some of that yummy sauce. Enjoy.
  • 19Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
