Expert Tips

To give this tasty roast more color, brown all sides in 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat before placing in the slow cooker and brushing with jam.

If you don't have any balsamic vinegar, use 1 tablespoon cider or white vinegar. Also, peach jam will work instead of apricot.
