I have a confession. I make a roast once a week! It is a meal everyone in our family loves. Spaghetti was something I made once a week, but we grew tired of it. I didn’t want that to happen since I make my roasts in the crockpot and they are truly the easiest meal I make. The Hubs saw a recipe for a roast on Facebook that someone had shared and he suggested I make it. He never does this so I knew I had to try it. I loved this recipe because it is a take on the classic roast I make. It was just amped up a bit. If you are looking for an easy meal for a busy night, this one is great. It was so much more flavorful than my classic roast. It was actually quite rich(probably due to the stick of butter!!!). I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
3# Chuck Roast
1 package of Ranch Salad Dressing Mix(NOT dip mix)
1 Package of Au Jus Mix
5-7 Jarred Pepperoncinis
1 TBS Pepperoncinis Juice
1 Stick of Butter(you could easily use 1/2 stick if using a 3# Roast)
Add Roast to slow cooker(crockpot). Sprinkle Ranch and Au Jus packets on top of roast. Add stick of butter on top of roast and add in Pepperoncinis and Juice.
Cook on low for 7 hours. If possible you can flip roast over half way through to evenly mix the seasonings with the butter. Also, at this time you can add any vegetables you prefer. I usually make mashed potatoes so I skipped this step.
