Roast, butter, dry ranch seasoning, dry gravy seasoning, pepperoncici,

  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 packet of dry ranch seasoning
  • 1 packet of dry gravy seasoning
  • Pepperoncici ( to your taste )

Note: I add 1/2 cup of water just to make sure the roast doesn’t get too dry but the recipe doesn’t call for it.

Cooking Method:

Crock Pot/ Slow Cooker / Instant Pot

I have yet to use my Instant Pot (just got it last week) but everyone I talked to says they are the bee’s knees. I researched a little on the cooking time for a roast using the Instant Pot and it stated that a roast could be cooked in approximately 1.5 – 2 hours. That frees up even more time for other tasks. 

Below I am posting an Amazon Affiliate (I get a small finders fee but it is seriously pennies on the dollar so go with the best price you can find) link to the Instant Pot. There are several versions of the Instant Pot with different options. These options drive the price up or down. I am listing a middle of the road unit. 

PREPARATION: Trim fat if desired – place roast into slow cooker


  • Pour contents of ranch seasoning packet into slow cooker


  • Pour the contents of the dry gravy packet into the slow cooker


  • Place the stick of butter into the slow cooker


  • Add pepperoncici’s


Turn that slow cooking mother lover to high for 6.5 hours.


After the roast has cooked you will be able to break it apart with a fork. Serve over rice or noodles. Make tacos with the meat. Or if you are Keto, then do what ever Keto do.


The recipe should serve approximately 4 adults. Or 1 alpaca.


For a delicious, easy and cost effective meal, follow the above recipe.
