This juicy roast is simple, but amazing! And the slow-cooker not only makes it really easy to do, but also gives it a fall-apart tender texture. Chuck roast is a good cut of meat for slow-cooking, and you can order chuck roast trimmed from the butcher. You can also swap the chuck for a pork roast.
While the roast is great on its own with a side of horseradish sauce, it also makes a mouthwatering and satisfying sandwich.
- 1 5-pound chuck roast
- 3 tablespoons canola oil
- 1 16-ounce jar pepperoncini peppers and their juices
