A friend had told me about this great roast she'd made and when I searched for it, I found several variations online. I don't use a lot of salt so the recipe as written was too salty for us. So I modified it. I also cook mine in the oven, because I like it that way.


  • 3 pounds chuck roast (or Top Round Roast)
  • 1/4 envelope ranch seasoning mix
  • 1/4 envelope au jus gravy mix
  • 4 tablespoons butter (cut into slices)
  • 6 whole pepperoncini
  • Did you make this?

    1. Place the roast in an oven safe dish, one which has a tight fitting lid.
    2. Mix the ranch dressing and the au jus gravy mix together and sprinkle over the roast.
    3. Place the Pepperoncini's on top.
    4. Then add the butter slices evenly over the top of the roast and place the lid on top. I like to put a sheet of aluminum foil over the top and then the lid.
    5. Bake at 350 degrees for 3 hours and remove from oven. There will be a lot of liquid in the bottom. Use that to make the gravy. Add a slurry of flour and water to the liquid to thicken. Serve with mashed potatoes.
