Banana Pepper Roast

Posted on

Our friends Joe and Marissa (of the “good peas” fame) invited us to lunch after church one day a million years ago, and she served a roast along with many delightful sides.  I only took a small portion of the roast ,being much more interested in the salad, her mashed potato casserole, and butternut squash bread, but once I took a bite, I was going back for more.  I’m not much of a meat eater, so when I found her roast irresistible, I asked her what her secret was.

“Banana Peppers.”

“Banana peppers?” I repeated, surprised.  “What else did you use?”

“That’s it.  I just poured a jar of banana peppers over the roast in the crockpot.  The acid from the brine really helps tenderize the meat.”

This was so simple, I had to try it at home.  I’m just surprised it took me so long!  But I’ve made it twice in the past month, to make up for lost time. :)

I adore the salty, piquant flavor the banana peppers & juice impart to the beef, and it really is melt-in-your mouth tender after roasting all day in the slow cooker.  And talk about easy!  Although Teri taught me to sear the outside  of a roast before sticking it in the crockpot, I didn’t even do that. Easy peasy & delicious…squeezy?

I know this combo sounds a bit odd, but you’ve got to try it to believe it!  It goes really well with mashed potatoes topped with a pat of butter and garlic salt, as I discovered after taking this picture. :)

        • Hahaha, I’m so anti-phone that it didn’t even occur to me to text you until much later. Hopefully the package will make it this time! I know a lot of ppl hate the post office b/c of mistakes like this, but I just have to remind myself that no one is perfect and this is the first trouble I’ve had.

    • Tami just wondering how hot does it end up using the pepperocinis? I love spicy hot italian sausage but sometimes the pepperocinis are too much for me.
      Veronica I am crazy about your blog and all of your recipe’s!!!!! TY, TY!! :)

      • Hi Catherine,

        I just pour the whole jar of pepperocnis in with the roast, juice and all and it imparts a wonderful flavor. If you are not as fond of them as I am, then I would perhaps use just half a jar. Hope that helps!

    LOVE this recipe! My sister In Law told me about it. Another variation is to put the meat onto a soft roll with a slice of Mozzarella cheese and broil till the cheese melts. YUM!
