Are You Ready For Some Football?

The one thing that makes you successful in life, no matter what it is you choose to do, is balance. Working hard is important, but relaxing and enjoying time with the people that you love is even more important. Sundays in our house during the fall are saved for church, football, food, food and more food!! Here’s how we do it ladies and gentlemen…..

 This is an awesome and easy pull apart finger food, that my family loves! You’ve got to try it!!

Mississippi Pot Roast

Ingredients

– 1 (3-4 pounds) chuck roast

– 1 packet ranch dressing mix

– 1 packet au jus gravy mix

– ¼ cup butter

– 4-5 pepperoncini peppers

Instructions:

1. Place roast in the slow cooker and sprinkle the top with the ranch dressing mix and the au jus mix. Place peppers on top of the mixes, and add the butter.

2. Cook over low heat for 8 hours. Serve with noodles, rice or mashed potatoes. Enjoy!

Notes:

*Do not add any water or broth to this! It will make enough liquid as it cooks.
If your family loves meat and potatoes like mine, this is a MUST. You will never make a roast any other way again because your family won’t let you!! Serve it over mash potatoes or on sandwich rolls… it is AMAZING!!
Now…. I’ve got to go to lunch because I’m starving!! Oh, and if your kitchen is too small to cook all this stuff, give us a call, we’ll help you buy a new one!!! Enjoy my friends!!
