Greatest pot roast ever

As you all know I'm a New Englander, I love autumn and classic New England food. One of my favorite dinners is New England Pot Roast or Yankee Pot Roast. Your basic pot roast recipe; cook all day with white potatoes, onions and carrots. I am now a changed man.
My wife found a pot roast recipe that I thought sounded insane, after all pot roast can only be prepared one way, right?
Here's what I was told to do...

Melt a stick of butter and put into crock pot, add a packet of Au Jus gravy mix (ok, sounds good so far), add a packet of Ranch dip mix (????), add the roast and roll in the liquid, then...ready for this? Then add a jar of pepperchini peppers! Are you kidding me??! Italian salad peppers on my pot roast! Inconceivable!! Cook in crock pot for 8 hours.

My friends, let me tell you something...I am a changed man. That was easily the most fucking delicious pot roast I have ever eaten in my life. The meat was like butter, I cut into it with a spoon! A spoon, I say! It may be the most delicious thing I have ever eaten in my life. And the peppers? Amazing. It was juicy, buttery, flavorful, tender and beyond words. Dust off your crock pot and try that one!
Oh, and it wasn't incredibly spicy so don't worry about that. I don't find Italian peppers that spicy to start with but this was even less than that. Just a nice kick.
