  • 2.5 pound chuck roast
  • kosher salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 packet au jus dried seasoning
  • 1 packet dried ranch dressing seasoning
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter or 1 stick
  • 6-10 peperoncini peppers


  • Cut off any excess fat* off of the chuck roast, and cut it into large manageable chunks. Season on all sides with salt and pepper.
  • Place the pot** over medium-high heat, add the olive oil and sear the meat on all sides. Do this in batches if necessary. Sear until golden brown.
  • Place the pot into the slow cooker base. Sprinkle the meat with the au jus and ranch. Add the butter right on top along with the peperoncini peppers. Cook on low for 8 hours until fork tender. 


**Place the pot of the Calphalon Precision Controlâ„¢ Slow Cooker directly on to the stove top. Or, you can use a large, heavy-bottomed skillet.
