Servings 8 Servings


  • 2 tablespoons neutral oil Such as canola, avocado, or vegetable
  • 2-3 pound chuck roast
  • 1 tablespoon Revolution Barbecue Texas Beef BBQ Rub
  • 1 packet ranch dressing mix
  • 1 packet dry onion soup mix
  • 1 stick salted butter
  • 8 pepperoncini peppers plus more for serving
  • 1 cup beef stock


  • Set your Insta-Pot or slow cooker to the sauté or sear setting. Add 2 tablespoons of oil and heat until it’s really hot – ideal for searing the beef quickly.
  • Dry both sides of the chuck roast with a paper towel. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Once the skillet is hot, add the roast and sear for about 2-3 minutes on each side, using tongs to flip it.
  • Transfer the seared meat to your slow cooker. Evenly sprinkle the ranch dressing mix and dry onion soup mix over the roast. Pour in the beef stock.
  • Place the stick of salted butter on top of the roast, then add the pepperoncini peppers around it.
  • Cover the cooker and set it to cook on low for 8 hours. Remember, patience is key – do not open the lid during this time.
  • After 8 hours, uncover the pot roast. Using two forks, shred the meat, discarding any large fatty pieces.
  • Serve the shredded pot roast with additional pepperoncini peppers if desired.
