I was really afraid to try this recipe, based on the ingredients, but the number of high ratings convinced me. We all loved it! I would do a few things differently next time, though: I lined my crockpot with a roasting bag to save on cleanup, which worked fine, but made it impossible to get the 3 1/2 lb. chuck roast out in one piece. I also used only half a bottle of banana pepper rings (the pepperocini in my stores are whole peppers with stems and seeds) and half the juice. Next time, I would use the whole bottle. I would also cut the meat up into big chunks before putting it in the cooker, (it's going to be shredded anyway), so that I could cut away more of the fat before cooking. I had a hard time removing the layer of grease from the juice, and would prefer it to be a lower fat dish. Otherwise, it was fantastic, and is now on my permanent list of favorites.
