Unwrap that chuck roast of goodness and place in your slow cooker set to low for 7 hours.
Cover the beef with half of a ranch dressing packet and a whole onion soup mix packet. And when I say cover, I mean get dirty. Rub and massage that entire baby.
Okay. Settle down now.
Remove the skin from the garlic cloves by ever so passive-aggressively smashing them with the flat side of a chef's knife. This will lose the skin and release it semi-whole. Don't worry if it's a little mulled, as this will aide in quick flavor release in the slow cooker.
Add garlic, 6-8 pepperocino peppers, and that big fat stick of butter to the top of the chuck roast.
Cover and cook on low for 5-7 hours.
Note: resist the temptation to open, poke, stir. Don't touch! This masterpiece does not want to be disturbed!
After about 5 or six hours, you can check the tenderness. You want it to fall apart with the nudge of a fork. If it doesn't, let it go for another hour and check again. Longer is better. This is not a recipe you can really 'over-do', although I'd not cook longer than 8-9 hours on low.
Enjoy! Oh, and I know you will enjoy.
