Default Mississippi Pot Roast.

My husband found this recipe while searching the internet.
To say this is delicious is a major understatement.
No veggies are cooked with the meat.

He used a crock pot (he didn't want to even try it in the instant pot).
I love it served over rice.

3-6lbChuck Roast
1/2-1cupPepperoncini Juice(from the jar)
1(1 oz)Packet of Dry Ranch Dressing Mix
1(1 oz)Packet of Au Jus(or brown gravy mix)
1Stick of Butter
9Pepperoncinis(from jarred)

Instructions

Place the chuck roast in the crock pot.
Pour the pepperoncini juice from the jar over the roast
Sprinkle the Ranch powder over the roast
Sprinkle the Au Jus powder over the roast.
Place the stick of butter on top of the roast.
Scatter the pepperoncinis over the roast.
Place the lid on the crock pot and set to Low for 8-9 hours, or High for 4-6 hours
Cook time will depend on how big the roast is. I often cut larger roasts in half for
more even cooking.
When the roast is done it will be so tender it will want to fall apart. At that point
you can turn off the crock pot.
I like to use a turkey baster to remove the drippings to a fat separator, then shred
the meat using two forks.
Then pour back in as much of the drippings as you like.
That juice has a lot of flavor, so don't be shy with it.
You could also make a gravy with it.
Serve over mashed potatoes, rice, or even noodles/zoodles.

I've seen this recipe before, but was concerned about the butter. Did it seem fatty after cooking?

Love this recipe. It's how I make pot roast now. I've narrowed it down to the pot roast, pepperoncinis, a little juice and one, sometimes two packets of ranch seasoning. I have added the butter but not the gravy mix. (Might have to give it a try). I serve it with mashed potatoes. Yum!

I didn't want to put in that much butter either. I use a well trimmed tri tip roast and only half the amount of butter. Sometimes I add some of the juice from the jar of peppers. It's still nummy.

I love this. No work at all! Throw in the crock pot and when it's done I use the paddle attachment on the stand mixer to shred for sandwiches. Sometimes I put provolone on the sandwich but usually the meat is enough.

This really is a nummy recipe but the ingredients are kind of scary. I had my doubts but it turned out great.

My hubs only uses 1/2 stick of unsalted butter (unsalted stick is all I buy except for Brown & Brummel)
Start with a very lean roast, I doesn't have to be a chuck roast.

So delish!

I make this all the time but use the Instant Pot. We love it and the butter doesn't seem to make it seem fatty.

How spicy do the pepperoncinis make the roast? My DH won't eat anything too spicy.
