Banana Pepper Roast

Banana Pepper Roast

Banana Pepper Roast

We’re trying a new take on roast!

I’m sure you’re all used to the classic roast and vegetables with gravy, but this new roast recipe inspired by FlavorGod was calling our name! Whether you think you’re a banana pepper fan or not, you’ve gotta try this. I had actually never had banana peppers before this roast and I have to say, this recipe is amazing!


This recipe will work with any size roast, we’ve used both the Hickok Hamburger “Strong Arm Roast” and the “Chuck Wagon Roast”, but you will have to change the cook time according to the weight of your meat!

You should know at the beginning of this recipe that we use a CrockPot to slow cook our roast! This is a great kitchen appliance we highly recommend! You can check out our model here on Amazon. Other slow cookers will work just fine.

Before cooking this recipe, please allow plenty of time for thawing your beef! We recommend thawing 1 of 2 ways. Beef thaws best in the refrigerator! For a roast, we suggest at least 12 hours of defrost time. Second best option would be thawing in cold water. If your beef is vacuum sealed (Hickok Hamburger always is ;), you are probably safe to soak the package straight in the water. Otherwise, place your frozen beef in a sealed Ziploc bag for its defrost bath! Change the water out every 20-30 minutes until the meat is fully thawed.

First, we prep the roast. Cover the roast completely in a thin layer of salt, pepper & flour (seasonings first). Next, heat a large skillet over medium/high heat, add olive oil, then sear the roast on all sides until lightly browned (this shouldn’t take more than 3-4 minutes).

Put your seared roast in the CrockPot (slow cooker). Start by covering with the liquids. First, separate the banana peppers from the juice in the jar. Pour the peppers and half of the juice over the roast. Then add in 1 C beef broth. After these two ingredients, move the peppers around a little to where there is only a thin layer of peppers covering the top of the roast. Next, cover the roast and peppers with 2 French Dip Au Jus packets (we use the Pioneer brand) & about 1 TBSP of ranch seasoning of your choice. You can add more ranch seasoning if you’d like! Finally, cut up 1 stick of butter (8oz) lengthwise and place the slices all over the roast & peppers.

Cover the CrockPot with the lid & set your settings to 6 hours (preferably on Low, but if your CrockPot is like ours, it only allows High for 6 hours and that is fine!)

After the 6 hours is up, remove the lid & shred your roast with 2 forks. Once shredded, mix the pot around to ensure the seasonings are mixed evenly.

Serve your roast and peppers over white rice & ENJOY!


We hope you enjoy this hearty home cooked recipe in the comfort of your own home! Bring the restaurant quality food to your kitchen table, then amplify it even more with Hickok Hamburger's “Strong Arm Roast” or “Chuck Wagon Roast”. You WILL taste the difference!
