Ever since I was a kid, pot roast has always been one of my favorite entrees. I’ll be honest though, after having it so many times growing up, it starts to wear on you. Not to mention it can easily dry out. That’s not the case anymore with this recipe!

SLOW COOKER POT ROAST
After trying the Mississippi pot roast recipe, I realized adding pepperoncini’s was my new favorite way to make pot roast. It adds such a nice kick to it. Although I’ve tried it with the ranch dressing packet & au just, it was good. I just prefer the recipe below.
With less than 5 ingredients, you’ll have the most moist, and tasty pot roast ever. The best part is, it takes very little effort with a slow cooker.
Slow Cooker Pot Roast taste amazing with mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, fries, rice, noodles, and even on nachos. If you’d like you could even add potatoes, carrots, or any other veggie into the slow cooker 2-3 hours before serving.
We’ve found this works well with fresh pepperoncini’s or jarred ones. Unfortunately fresh one’s aren’t always available though.
This can be made in an Instant Pot, or in the oven as well.
