Blue Ribbon Recipe

There are versions of this Mississippi roast everywhere and for good reason. This recipe couldn't be simpler and it makes an amazing chuck roast. The butter slowly melts and mixes with the seasoning and natural juices of the roast. It makes the best sauce. Pouring ranch seasoning and au jus mix over the roast creates a tasty crust. Acid from the pepperoncini peppers helps to tenderize the meat and brightens the flavors. The final result is a tender and amazing roast.
