Time in the Kitchen: 5 minutes to put ingredients in slow cooker, plus 6 to 8 hours cooking time
1 boneless chuck roast, 3 to 4 pounds (1.4 kg to 1.8 kg)
1 teaspoon kosher salt (5 ml)
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper (2.5 ml)
1 tablespoon butter, cut into small cubes (15 g)
8 whole pepperoncini or 1 cup/150 g chopped pepperoncini
Place the roast in a slow cooker set on low. Scatter butter cubes on top of the roast. Scatter pepperoncini on and around the roast. Pour PRIMAL KITCHEN™ Ranch Dressing over the roast. Cook 6 to 8 hours, until the meat pulls apart easily with a fork.
Slice or shred the meat. Pour the sauce in the slow cooker on top of the meat. (If the sauce has separated and seems oily, whisk the sauce in a bowl before pouring over the meat. If the sauce seems too runny, pour into a saucepan and simmer 10 to 20 minutes to reduce and thicken).
If desired, serve the roast with more pepperoncini, plus fresh dill or chives.
