slow cooker banana pepper roast

Recipe by

This recipe was a hit with even my small kids, who preferred pork roast over the beef. If cooking this for kids, choose whole peppers to make it easy to remove them before serving the kids. If your kids are older or this is for adults, sliced is just as good, and makes it easy to pile them on leftover roast sandwiches. Don't skip browning the roast first. It just has a better flavor and looks better. For a bigger kick, try pepperoncini peppers. They are not the same as banana peppers, they are stronger, so kids may not like them.
