OK, you guys we have all seen this on pinterest…
Well I had not until my sister suggested this is what I make for Christmas Day lunch. You see I was lucky enough to be able to have my brother and his family over for lunch. I knew they had tradition of dinner with her family so I didn’t want anything heavy. I asked my Facebook friends for ideas and my sis suggested this.
Um, sooooooooo glad I took her suggestion. Now I don’t know how it is really supposed to be served. I served it on buns with provolone cheese … amazing!!!
There were of course left overs which I heated up in the microwave with just cheese on top so it melted and ate that with a salad for lunch and/or dinner – no judgments please.
So this dish could not be more simple. Plus we got the roasts at Costco so two came in a package which you guessed it means I made twice in that time frame. I have changed the recipe from what my sister sent and what I found on pinterest. I am using LESS butter! Gasp I know, but it is just as amazing I promise! The original recipe calls for an entire stick of butter, which is how we had it on Christmas. This time we did it with less and I was very happy with the outcome.
So 1 (2-3 pound) chuck roast goes into the crock pot on low.
Then you dump 1 packet of Au Jus Gravy and 1 packet of Dry Ranch Mix on top.
Slice up 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter
Drop in 5 pepperoncini peppers then cover and cook all day!
Remove peppers – learn from my mistake! Hubby ended up getting two stems in his sandwich – no good. ***You can also cut the tops off and return them back to the meat***
Remove the meat and shred. Now I try to take out as much of the fat from the meat at this point as possible. I know some people leave it so more power to you if that’s what you do … I remove it. Dump all the shredded meat back into the crockpot and stir into the liquid.
I serve this yumminess up on buns with provolone cheese. So good! Enjoy!
