Arm Roast was definately a new one for me when we started buying our meat from the farm. What the heck is Arm Roast? An Arm Roast is part of the Chuck (which is more familiar to some). It is part of the shoulder area of the cow; and because of such, can often be tough if not cooked the right way.
Many people braise an Arm or Chuck Roast. I'm not a fan of multiple steps when cooking... so when I discovered a great recipe where I could cook my Arm Roast in a crock pot, I was all for it.
Balsamic-Honey Roast Beef
1 Arm Roast (you don't have to worry about cutting the bone out)
1 Cup Beef Broth
1/2 Cup balsamic vinegar
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 Tablespoon soy or Tamarind (gluten-free) sauce
1/4 cup Honey
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons chopped garlic
Place Arm Roast into crock pot. Mix other ingredients in a bowl and then pour over your roast. This receipe will cook better at slower temperatures. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
Once cooked, remove Arm Roast from crock pot and place into a serving dish. Use two forks to gently pull apart te meat. Set your bone aside to make bone broth later! Ladle about 1/2 cup of your sauce from the crock pot onto the roast. You can keep the remaining sauce to use with the rest of your meal, or put in an air tight container to use later.
Sides to make with this meal? If your a bread eater, you can make this on sandwhiches and use the sauce as a dipping sauce. You can also do mashed potatoes and use the sauce as a gravy. Then add some veggies on the side and you are good to go!
