Slow Cooker Instructions

  • Place beef roast in a slow cooker.
  • Placed sliced onions on roast. Pour entire bottle of pepperoncini's and juice over top. If you can not find pre-cut pepperoncinis then just take the tops off the whole ones and tear into small pieces. Be sure to add all the juices to the slow-cooker.

What type of beef roast do I buy? 
Because stores often have different cuts that look better than other at different times I don't always buy one specific cut of roast. I look for a roast that is lean (does not have large slabs of fat) but has nice white marbling throughout. If you have a favorite cut use that! 
How large of a roast do you buy? 
With this recipe you can buy large or small deepening on the size of your family or group you are feeding. I like to buy 3-4 lbs roast. 
Do I sear the roast? 
I love to sear the roast when I have time. In a saute pan, or on sauté setting in your instant pot,  sear the roast on all sides in some vegetable or olive oil.
