- This is a great meal to make ahead and save for lunches during the week. Pepperoncini Pot Roast can be saved in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to seven days. To reheat simply pop in the microwave until warm enough or put inside of a pan and heat on medium-high for 10 minutes.
- The key to this recipe is keeping the lid on so that very little or no liquid escapes. Additionally, add water as needed to keep the meat moist and tender. Moist and tender meat is necessary to shred easily.
- Ideally, two forks should be used to shred the meat. However, if necessary, it can be cut and then shredded.
- If a lot of the recipe is leftover, you can separate it into individual containers with lids and freeze them for batch cooking. This is a great recipe to double and then part out for batch-cooking. Batch cooking is an important component of having food on hand that can be easily reheated so that you can avoid take-out.
- Things that can be added are garlic powder, onion flakes, celery salt, shallots, green onions, and apple cider vinegar. Pork shoulder or pork round can be substituted for beef.
