Post Roast Sliders

At the present moment I seem to be drowning in beef products. Really, there are worse problems I could be having. I have been trolling the internet, and my beloved Pinterest, in search of new recipes for beef. You know, the type of recipes that make my family say, "Wow Mom, you are the best cook ever."  Or....something similar.  

So, I took out my beloved crock pot and placed a three pound roast inside of it with the following recipe: 

1 cup beef broth
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon red pepper
4 cloves garlic, chopped 

I let it cook all day on low and had a very successful roast for the supper hour.  And, this prompted me to save the leftover liquid,and beef,  for sliders.....I love them.  

After skimming off the congealed fat, (icky), I mixed a small amount of the liquid with cornstarch to thicken my mixture.  Then, I added it to the rest of the liquid in my pan.  



I added the shredded beef to the warming liquid and allowed it to come to a low boil. 




And then, I plated myself up a little slider....or two, since no one else was home :)



Yes, it was good and I offered to share when everyone else came home.
