This is one of those quintessential dump and cook recipes. Ok, really you sear the chuck roast first, but it’s not absolutely necessary.

So, heat a skillet with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Season the chuck roast with salt and pepper on both sides. Brown the meat for 2-3 minutes on each side.

Transfer the roast to the crock, sprinkle the ranch dressing mix and beef onion soup mix over the roast evenly.

I’ve also been known to pour a little of the pepperoncini juice in for some extra spiciness.
