Savory Stories - The BEST EVER Pot Roast in a Crockpot

Thanks, Rocky for coming up with a challenge about cooking!    Not being much of a cook (a great griller though), I had this recipe I have cooked this past month, and BOY was it delicious.   Who wants to make a pot roast in the summer when it is SO HOT in the oven?    But, in the crockpot, it makes your whole house smell SO good.   

 

 

Also, there are not many ingredients, so very easy to throw together the night before into the crockpot, and move it to cook the next morning.

 

Mississippi Pot Roast

 

Ingredients - 

1 (3-4 pounds) Chuck Roast

1 packet ranch dressing mix

1 packet au jus gravy mix

/4 cup butter

4-5 pepperoncini peppers

 

Instructions - 

Place roast in the slow cooker and sprinkle the top with the ranch dressing mix and the au jus mix.  Place peppers on top of the mixes and add the butter.    Cook over low heat for 8 hours.   When it is finished cooking, you can shred it very easily.   Serve with noodles, rice or mashed potatoes.  ENJOY!

There was so much, I have quite a bit of leftovers!

 

 

Notes:

DO NOT add any water or broth to this!  It will make enough liquid as it cooks.

You can also add potatoes and carrots within 1-2 hours left of cooking time.

 

The pepperoncini peppers do add a bit of a kick, but I left them whole, and the meat was not spicy, but very tasty!

Hello Joan - as intriguing as the recipe is, I admit the wine caught my attention.  I do like a good Malbec.

Hi Joan - pot roast is a great choice and I have made it all the time in slow cookers like you have.  I will give your recipe a try.

My Dad used to make a really good pot roast in the crockpot and I will keep your recipe and perhaps try it myself sometime.

Hi Joan... this sounds terrific. I will definitely try out this recipe. I do pot roast quite frequently in my crockpot so always looking for a new twist.

Kathy Streib I usually don't cook pot roast very often either, too much leftover, but this one was so good, had to do my own.   Still, lots of leftovers.

James, I don't "cook" much either, throw something on the grill, or salad with a veggie.   I usually keep it pretty simple.

Michael Jacobs Isabella malbec is another pretty good malbec, and not too expensive.

Brian England I used a pretty good-sized chuck roast, so cooking for one, you will have quite a bit of leftover.   Invite some guests if/when you make it.

Nina Hollander, Broker Laura made it when I was invited over to her house when her mom was in town, and hers was a bit more tangy with the pepperocinis.    Mine was just good.   Let me know if you make it, and like it.

Good morning Joan! I think that is the first recipe I saw here that included a calorie count.  Great job!

Rocky Dickerson with some watching the calories, thought it may be worth including.
