Heat up a large skillet on your stove. Add your oil to the hot skillet. You'll want your pan to be pretty hot so that it sears your beef quickly.
Take your pot roast and dry both sides with a paper towel. Season it lightly with a little pepper and salt.
Add the roast to your hot skillet. Sear each side of the pot roast for a few minutes. You'll want it to have a nice bit of color/browning to it.
Once you have browned all the sides, transfer your pot roast to your crock pot.
Sprinkle the dry ranch dressing and au jus gravy packets over the top of the pot roast.
Top with your half a stick of butter (it works best if you cut it into pats).
Place the peppers around and on the roast. Then drizzle half the jar of juice into the crockpot.
Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
Take two forks and start shredding the meat. Discard any big fatty pieces.Serve with mashed potatoes or egg noodles and enjoy!Drizzle the delicious sauce over everything!
