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

  1. PREP/PREPARE
  2. THE ROAST
  3. Gather your ingredients.
  4. Place a rack in the lower position, and preheat the oven to 275f (135c)
  5. Rub the roast down with the oil, and then sprinkle with salt & pepper, to taste.
  6. Place a pot over medium-high heat, and sear the roast on all sides, about 2 minutes, per side.
  7. Remove the roast, and reserve.
  8. THE BRAISING LIQUID
  9. Gather your ingredients.
  10. Add the ingredients to the pot, and reduce heat to medium.
  11. Chef's Note: Use a wooden spoon to scrape the fonds off the bottom of the pot, and incorporate them into the braising liquid.
  12. Bring up to a simmer, while stirring to incorporate all the ingredients.
  13. Chef'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.
  14. Return the roast to the pot.
  15. Tightly cover and place in the oven until fork tender, about 4 hours.
  16. Chef’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.
  17. PLATE/PRESENT
  18. Remove 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.
  19. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
