    Delicious! Tons of flavor! SUPER easy and fast! House smelled amazing walking in the door after a long day of work! Enough exclamation points? :) <br/><br/>I love recipes that take 5 minutes to prep and zero utensils. This truly is a busy mom's dream recipe! I added 1/2 jar (and juice) of hot banana peppers to give it more 'kick', based on some reviews I'd read. <br/><br/>I drained the juice from some of the remaining meat and the next night used the shredded beef for taco salad. I love how versatile the recipe is!

    I love pepperoncini. I use it frequently in many things, and use the liquid as salad dressing, so when I saw this recipe I knew I had to try it. I did not see the need to use the actual peppers when I had so much "juice" on hand, so I just used the liquid from the peppers. The flavor was excellent and gave a different taste to a common pot roast.

    My husband is a huge fan of pepperoncini peppers, so I just had to try this! For the inexpensive meat, I used two 2lb outside round beef roasts which we cooked on low for 10 1/2 hours. Our beef was tender, but not shredding apart as I was expecting. Next time, I would try a different cut of beef. I also agree with a previous reviewer, the flavour from the pepperoncinis didn't stand out. A bit disappointing, considering the title and description make you believe the peppers will be a dominating flavour in the recipe. Hence my 3 star rating. Thank you for posting this recipe!

    Amazing how this beef was still tough at 9 hours, but at 11 hours, like clockwork, it fell into shreds. I expected it would have more pepper flavor -- this was a lot like other onion soup roasts I've had. But it certainly tenderized a tough cut. Thanks for the recipe.

    Glad I found this recipe! DH loves pepperoncini and in turn, loves this steak (I used two london broil steaks). Very tasty, and just passed the recipe on to a co-worker that will be making it this weekend. Thanks!
