Pepperoncini Pot Roast
by Eve (MS gulf coast)
3-4 lb roast...beef or pork
One jar Pepperoncini peppers
Put roast in crock pot, add peppers, juice and all, to pot. Cook for
four hours on high or eight hours on low.
This can be served with rice or mashed potatoes. Leftovers make
wonderful pulled pork or beef sandwiches. Don't forget to put the
peppers on the sandwich.
When I make a pork roast, I will sometimes use the leftovers to
place over cooked cabbage. You could probably cook the cabbage right
with the roast.
