Delicious! A friend posted this on FB and I figured the recipe would be here too. I would recommend not adding any extra salt because the au jus and ranch mix have plenty. As the poster said the peppers are a key ingredient and changes the flavor in a great way! I thickened the gravy with some Wondra flour and served it over mashed potatoes. I threw some baby carrots in with the roast and they were delicious too. My husband isn't a gravy guy and he said he could drink it. Highly recommend this easy recipe.

This recipe is awesome. I wouldn?t change anything - except I love pepperoncini peppers so I will probably add a few more next time.

This is very good and easy to put together in the morning before walking out the door. I followed the recipe as written other then my peppers were sliced so I used about 12 to 15 of them. Everyone loved this. The meat had a great taste to it and was tender.

I have made this several times, and glad to see it here so I can save it. Definitely one of my most favorite ways to make a roast in the crockpot. I have used my own homemade mixes for the ranch and au jus, and cut down the butter to 2 tablespoons with much success. Love the pepperocini peppers and have started adding them to other recipes in my crockpot when I want a little zing.

Absolutely fabulous! I have never eaten a more tender and tasty roast. I highly recommend using the juice to make gravy. I did and it was wonderful, too. Everyone begged for the recipe.<br/>I think I may add a few more peppers next time and carrots, too. Definitely a 5 star recipe!

Thanks for sharing this one!! I was suprised at home juicy it was. I took 2 forks and shredded it right in the crockpot and made sandwhiches, very tender. A definate re-do.

I got this recipe from my mom - who got it from a friend. I've had it twice and it is great! If you drain the liquid and refrigerate it you can remove most of the fat and use only what you want to make gravy.

I have this slow cooking in my crockpot as I write this. I have made this several times and each time my son-in-law just raves about it. It is so good that after I send some home with them, I put it in the freezer in just the right portions to go with little portions of rice from earlier meals. So, so good! I add garlic to everything possible and this as well. Also Hidden Valley makes a 'spicy' dry dressing mix. Everything else is just like recipe. Totally awesome!

The Bomb easy meal. I love crock pot recipes for work day meals and this will be repeated a lot. I didn't have the pepperoncini peppers and it was still the best ever. I layered the crock pot with sliced onions and it was just a bonus to the gravy. I highly recommend. Would make an awesome Sunday meal too.
