September, in all her crisp glory is here, and that means my slow cooker will get put back into regular routine around here. I’m all about hearty soups, stews, and yes, a delicious pot roast!
A couple of years ago, I stumbled on a variation of the ever popular Butter Roast, but this recipe has Italian seasonings and peppers added. It is the perfect combination of herbs, butter, and juicy meat! Ours is cooking away as I type up the recipe.
And since most folks hate long winded introductions to recipes, I’ll nip it in the bud and get straight to the point…
Slow Cooker Italian Pot Roast
1 Cup Onions, Diced
1 Stick of Butter
1 Packet of Dry Zesty Italian Seasoning
1 Packet of Au Jus
2-3 Pepperocini Peppers
1 Can Beef Broth
Also, I like to line my slow cooker with cooking bags, add the roast, the wet ingredients, and then the seasonings. Let is cook for four hours on high (or six on slow).
This recipe makes its own gravy. So I spoon out the meat and drizzle the leftover gravy on top. It is paired very well with mashed potatoes!
The leftover meat also makes a delicious drip sandwich! Just slather the meat onto hoagie rolls, melt mozzarella or Colby jack cheese on top, and enjoy.
