As a food blogger, I don’t repeat meals very often, but there are a few that my family does request on a regular basis, like Butter Chicken. This Balsamic Glazed Roast Beef is another favorite. My youngest especially loves it, and pleads with me to make it often. And it’s so delicious, it’s hard not to indulge his request.
We also love this Brown Sugar and Balsamic Glazed Pork Loin, which is where I got the inspiration to create the balsamic glaze for this recipe. It has a wonderful sweet and tangy flavor that compliments the beef so well. My kids also love spooning some of the glaze over roasted potatoes. Leftovers (if you have any) make for some fabulous sandwiches.
