Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Pat roast dry and season all over with salt and pepper to taste. When skillet is very hot, add oil and brown the roast on all sides, about 3 min. per side. Transfer roast to a slow cooker. Peel all cloves in the bulb of black garlic and smash cloves together into a paste. Rub black garlic paste evenly over the top of the roast. In a separate bowl, mix spices and shallots together and sprinkle evenly all over roast. Place butter pats across the roast and top with sliced pepperoncini. Re-heat skillet used for the roast over medium heat. Add liquid from the pepperoncini jar and stir for about a minute to get the browned bits off the bottom of the skillet. Pour liquid into slow cooker with roast. Cook on low for about 6 hours or until roast is tender and falling apart. Use two forks to shred the meat and serve with remaining sauce from slow cooker on the side.
