American Ninja Pot Roast

Ok, that title doesn't make any sense.  This post is a mash-up of Betty's amazing pot roast and Matt's obsession with American Ninja Warrior.  First, here's Betty telling about the pot roast then I'll be back to talk about Matt the Ninja.

I wanted to share my recipe for this delicious roast we had tonight for supper. It cooked all day in the crock pot and smelled amazing. Hope you will give it a try...

Mississippi Crock-Pot Roast
  Chuck Roast or Rump Roast
1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch
1 packet McCormick Au Jus mix
1 stick of butter
5 whole pepperoncini (from jar)

1. Brown roast then place in crock pot.
2. Sprinkle with ranch mix and au jus mix
3. Place stick of butter and pepperoncinis on top of roast.
4. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.

Suggestions: Don't put potatoes, carrots, etc. in the crock pot with the roast. The vegetables will soak up all the yummy gravy.
You can add a little water to the gravy after cooking.

Matt's favorite show on TV right now is American Ninja Warrior.  If you haven't seen it, it's a competition where people try to make it through a very difficult obstacle course and make it to the finals in Las Vegas.  They Vegas finals have four stages and no person has ever completed all four stages in the previous four seasons.  Whenever he watches it, it fires Matt up so much that he has to start running around the house jumping over stuff and climbing the door facings!  Those of you who know Betty know that that is not something she is very keen on.  It just shows you how much Matt has her wrapped around his little finger that she lets him get away with it!

Thursday I took Matt to the park and let him try out some of his "ninja" moves.  Here are some pictures and a little video clip.
