Love Thy Crockpot

Between trying to soak up as much outside time as possible and then being sick, I've been relying quite heavily on my crockpot lately. Here is a BBQ-style sweet & sour beef & cabbage "stew" I made recently. I had planned on leftovers for the next day, but my hungry family had other plans.

2lb beef or buffalo roast
small head of cabbage
large onion
oil for searing
2/3 c vinegar (we use apple cider vinegar)
1/3 c honey, maple syrup or sugar
1/2 c bone broth (chicken or beef), water is okay too
1 tsp dry mustard powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
sea salt & pepper

* Heat small amount of oil. Slice onion. Brown in heated oil w/a little bit of salt.
* Chop cabbage into thick "ribbons". Place in crock pot.
* Put browned onions over cabbage.
* Heat a little more oil (in same pan as onions). Sear roast until brown on all four sides.
* Put seared roast on top of cabbage & onions.
* Mix vinegar, syrup/sugar/honey, broth/water, spices. Pour over meat.
* Cook on high 5ish hours or low 7ish hours.
