"Throw all the ingredients in the crock pot the night before, or in the morning before you go to work and it's ready when you get home. If you want a little more heat, use Jalapeno peppers. DO NOT add any additional water to this. Your roast will be tender and delicious and will make its own gravy. Serve with mashed potatoes, egg noodles, or rice."

Step 1

Spray your crock pot with non-stick cooking spray (It makes cleanup so much easier).

Step 2

Place the roast in the crock pot and sprinkle with a little black pepper and a little seasoned salt.

Step 3

Sprinkle the top with the Ranch Dressing Mix and the Au Jus Mix.

Step 4

Place Jalapeno peppers or pepper rings on top of mixes (The pepper rings disintegrate in the cooking process, and just become part of the gravy). Don't leave the peppers out because they really add a lot of flavor (If you don't use too many, they don't even add noticeable heat, just flavor).

Step 5

Add butter on top (The butter is what makes the gravy so good). Set your crock pot to 8 hours on low.

Delicious super easy pot roast. I used a brisket and added mushrooms and onions. I also used an orange bell pepper. Amazing flavor combo. I served it with left over mashed potatoes from Thanksgiving. True comfort food! Made for Billboard tag.

Great roast that had a very tasty gravy. We love the zippy flavor the peppers added to the roast and gravy. I will make this frequently because my family went bonkers when they tasted it! I served mashed potatoes and carrots with it.
