  • 3-4 lb pot roast
  • 3-4 tablespoons butter

  • 4 oz pepperoncini peppers (optional)
  • 1-2 cups beef broth


  • Step 1: Place the roast in a slow cooker or dutch oven.
  • Step 2: Add butter to the roast.
  • Step 3: Sprinkle ranch dressing mix and au jus gravy mix over the roast.
  • Step 4: If desired, add pepperoncini peppers to the pot for extra flavor.
