Tips and Notes 

  • Add some juice from the peperoncinis. The peperoncinis in this recipe lend outstanding flavor to the pork. I like to add a few splashes of the juice from the pepper jar to all of my ingredients in the crockpot. The peperoncinis do not add spicy heat to your Mississippi Pork Roast; just a delicious savory flavor.
  • Serving suggestions: I love to serve this shredded pork as a sandwich with either hamburger buns or Hawaiian slider rolls. Since pulled pork is such a versatile dish, you could even serve it over rice, as a salad, etc.
  • Storing leftovers: Any leftover Mississippi Pork Roast meat can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

What cut of meat works best for Mississippi Pork Roast?

I’ve made this many times with pork tenderloin, Boston butt, or a pork shoulder roast and all work great. If you use a more fatty cut of meat like a Boston butt, you will want to discard any excess fat when you start to shred your meat.

How to Make Mississippi Pork Roast in the Instant Pot

You can easily adapt this recipe to be made in the Instant Pot instead of the crockpot. Add all of the ingredients to your Instant Pot along with 1 cup of water. Cook over manual pressure for one hour then allow the pressure to release naturally. Shred your meat and serve.
