1. Sprinkle roast with salt and pepper. In a large heavy skillet on medium, heat oil. Add roast and cook until browned on both sides, about 6 minutes.

2. Transfer roast to a 6-quart slow cooker. Add potatoes, carrots, onions, broth, tomatoes, pepperoncini with reserved liquid, Italian seasoning, paprika, cayenne (if using), garlic and bay leaf.

3. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or on high for 4½ to 5 hours. Discard bay leaf.

4. Use a slotted spoon to transfer meat and vegetables to a platter; drizzle with cooking liquid and sprinkle with parsley. 

Note: This roast can also be served as a stew. Simply break up the cooked roast into smaller chunks. Divide the roast, vegetables and cooking liquid among bowls and sprinkle servings with parsley.
