Don't let the butter scare you! This roast was so delicious and moist. It has become a family favorite. You can make a side dish of mashed potatoes or rice. There is plenty of juice!

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.

Note: Serve with mashed potatoes, rice, or oven-roasted carrots and potatoes. Yum! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
