Ingredients (9)

Steps (4)

  • Step 1
    Season chuck roast generously with salt and pepper. Rub enough flour over the roast to evenly coat the surface.
  • Step 2
    In a large skillet pan, warm oil over high heat until very hot but not smoking. Sear the roast until browned and crusty on all sides, about 10 minutes total.
  • Step 3
    Place roast in the pot of a slow cooker. Pour beef broth around the roast, then sprinkle with seasoning mix, top with butter, and scatter pepperoncini over and around the roast.
  • Step 4

    Cover the slow cooker and set on low heat for 7 to 8 hours. When ready, shred the meat, mixing with the sauce in the slow cooker, and serve over bread, egg noodles, or potatoes.

    Time-saving tip: In a rush? Swap the flour for one 1-ounce package of dry au jus gravy mix and skip the step for browning the meat.

  • For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Good! I'm not a huge fan of roast but my family is o I thought I'd try my hand at this recipe. I'm so glad I did because I really like it. I tweaked a few ingredients that were a bit on the spicy side but other than that i followed the recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing no fail recipe! I have to admit that I was skeptical of this recipe when I first read it. However, after reading review after review about how everyone loved it, I decided to try it and just not tell my not so adventurous husband what I was going to do to the roast... He may have stumbled upon the Please-No-More-Recipes-From-Your-Tastebud-Missing-Friends once. Okay, maybe twice. He loved this roast, and asked for seconds. I've actually made this now a few times (at my husband's request, by the way), and can safely say that it does taste a lot better if you take the time to sear the roast first. If you don't, it's no big deal, it's still going to taste like a million bucks. I've made this in the crock pot and in the Instant Pot, and both turned out great. What prompted me to write this review was that last week, my husband requested this roast and I forgot to pick one up from the store. I did have chicken, though. I scanned the reviews to see if anyone had fixed it with chicken and I couldn't find any (although I am sure there is another separate recipe for that). I can safely say that if you forget to pick up a roast and have chicken, it will turn out pretty good, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding flavor! This was a new recipe for me and the flavor was outstanding! Bold yet still allowed all the different tastes come through. Roast was very tender.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delicious! Pot Roast if not seasoned right could have a very bland flavor. Hidden Valley Ranch flavor really gives it a nice interested especially.
