Mississippi Pot Roast – The most delicious pot roast you will EVER eat! Made with just five simple ingredients and slow cooked in the crockpot, you are going to fall in love with this!
I am very excited about today’s recipe. I have literally made it four times since getting the recipe from my mother-in-law just a few weeks ago. It is hands-down the BEST roast I have EVER eaten! Seriously, y’all, I am in love with this pot roast and so is the rest of my family!
Like I said, I cannot take credit for creating this recipe, it is just one of the many amazingly yummy recipes I have gotten from my mother-in-law over the years. Her homemade spaghetti sauce is one of the most popular recipes on my site, and it’s also one of my personal favorites.
Now I have no answer for you as to why this is called a Mississippi Pot Roast, but if all food that comes out of Mississippi tastes as good as this, then I might have to pack my bags and head over there! It’s the south, so it’s automatically an awesome state, I say. 😉
The simplicity of this Mississippi Pot Roast is where its try beauty lies. A chuck roast, ranch dressing mix, au jus gravy mix, butter, and some jarred pepperoncini peppers come together to make the tastiest, tenderest, most delicious pot roast ever.
We’ve eaten this over rice and mashed potatoes and I loved it both ways. My mother-in-law also suggested it for sandwiches, so we might try that next!
Seriously, try it. You won’t regret it!!
