Once you try Mississipi pot roast, you’ll never want to eat roast any other way again. Not only is it bursting with flavor, but it is also one of the easiest dishes to make! Just toss it into a crockpot, and it let it get cooking.
If you haven’t tried this Mississippi pot roast recipe, I recommend doing so ASAP! There is no prep and it takes just FIVE ingredients! Be careful though – as your family may ask for it time and time again!!
So, what exactly is Mississippi pot roast?
It is one of the simplest crockpot dump recipes you can make. Seriously. It is made with your favorite marbled chuck roast and cooked using just butter, ranch, au jus and peperoncini. The nice slow cook makes the flavors blend together and the result is a melt-in-your-mouth pot roast you just can’t get enough of.
Toss the ingredients in your slow cooker in the morning, and it will be ready in time for dinner. It is the slow cook that makes Mississippi pot roast so good. That gives the flavors more time to meld together and make your roast super tender.
I have had some questions about the pepperoncini peppers. If you are concerned they will make the dish spicy, don’t. All they do is add more flavor to your meat. I don’t recommend not using them as it can make a difference (at least from my experience).
I love this simple crock pot roast recipe because it’s simple and always a crowd pleaser. Add roasted veggies and mashed potatoes for the perfect meal. Top it off with buttery bear bread and croissant bread pudding for the perfect meal!
