Mississippi Pot Roast Recipe Crock-Pot

*This post contains affiliate links*

I don't know if it's all the rain we've been having, or the fact that my mind is shifting towards autumn, but I have been craving comfort food like crazy.  However, it's a raging inferno outside, so I don't necessarily want to have my oven going all day.  That's when I turn to my crock-pot.  


I had a chuck roast in my freezer, but I wasn't in the mood for my Classic Slow-Cooker Pot Roast.  I clicked on Pinterest and typed pot roast in the search bar.  Next thing I know something called Mississippi Pot Roast popped up about a million times.  I assumed it must be good so I decided to give it a try.  OH.MY.STARS!  This was seriously one of the best meals I have ever had and I can't wait to share it with you so...

Let's Get Started!

Crock-Pot Mississippi Pot Roast Recipe:
*Prep Time: 5 min *Cook Time: 8hrs *Difficulty:  Easy  *Servings:  4-8

Ingredients:


  • 3-4 lb Chuck Roast
  • 1 Packet of Ranch Dressing Mix
  • 1 Packet of Au Jus Gravy Mix
  • 1 Packet of Onion Soup Mix
  • 6-8 Whole Pepperoncini Pepper
  • 1 Stick of Butter


As you know, I would usually brown this roast on both side, but you know what...I was lazy on this particular day so I didn't.  Guess what, it was perfectly fine.  



So to begin you simply place your chuck roast into your crock-pot.

In case you are wondering I use the

Crock-Pot 6-Quart Cook & Carry Oval Manual Portable Slow Cooker

It's nothing fancy, but it gets the job done.  


Next I combined all the seasoning packets into a small dish and mixed them together.

I realize that you don't have to do this, but in my mind I am thinking it will help all the flavors be distributed evenly.  I don't know if there is any actual science behind that, but I did it none the less.  lol

Also, you will notice that I didn't add any extra salt or pepper to this.  Because I was using all of these seasoning packets, and they tend to contain a lot of salt, and I did feel like I would need it.  I was right.  The flavor is SPOT ON.


Now I sprinkled this all over the roast, and I mean ALL OVER the roast.
That bad boy was covered good!


Next I placed the peppers on top of it.

If you are like me, my first question was "Is this going to make the roast super spicy?"  The answer to that is no.  It actually adds a nice tang to it, which helps to cut through the richness of the beef.


After that you will place a stick of butter (YES AN ENTIRE STICK) of butter on top of the roast.

This recipe may be my spirit animal.  lol  I <3 butter.



Now you place the lid on your crock-pot and set it to LOW for 8 hours or HIGH for 4.

I KNOW!  No extra liquid!  Who has ever heard of such a thing, but take a look at the next pic.


HOLY GRAVY BATMAN!  I couldn't believe the juices that turned up when it was finished cooking. And it smelled OUT OF THIS WORLD!

My husband came home for lunch and was like "WHAT ARE YOU MAKING!?!  It smells amazing!"


So the next step is to remove the Mississippi Pot Roast from the crock-pot and place it into a shallow dish.


Using forks shred the beef to your preferred size.
Then spoon all of the gravy from the crock pot over it and you are ready to serve.


Look at how rich and flavorful that Mississippi Pot Roast looks!  The color of the beef is absolutely representative of how it tastes.  The first bite literally gave me chills.


I served mine with some grilled zucchini and a side salad, but it would be great over rice or with potatoes and corn.  One thing is for sure, this Crock-Pot Mississippi Pot Roast is going to be happening a lot in my house this fall and winter!  I know you are going to love it, so get in the kitchen and make it tonight!  And if you have any other pot roast recipes, I would love to hear about them in the comments!

And as always...

Happy Reading, Happy Eating, and Happy Living,
