Hello. Welcome to solsarin. This post is about “mississippi pot roast in slow cooker“.


Mississippi (/ˌmɪsɪˈsɪpi/ (listen)) is a state in the Southeastern region of the United States, bordered to the north by Tennessee; to the east by Alabama; and to the south by the Gulf of Mexico; to the southwest by Louisiana; and to the northwest by Arkansas. Mississippi’s western boundary is largely defined by the Mississippi River. Mississippi is the 32nd largest and 35th-most populous of the 50 U.S. states. Jackson is both the state’s capital and largest city. Greater Jackson is the state’s most populous metropolitan area, with a population of 591,978 in 2020.[7]


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 Mississippi Pot Roast 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.


Mississippi Pot Roast is a combination of five simple ingredients that all cook together in your slow cooker. It’s typically made with a chuck roast, which is inexpensive and easy to find at most grocery stores. You can also makes this with other cuts of meat, like I have with Mississippi Pulled Pork.

Cooking a chuck roast over low heat in your crock pot yields incredibly tender results, and the other ingredients added to this roast give it incredible flavor!

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.


Here’s the beauty of this roast. It’s so simple! You’ll need:

  • a chuck roast
  • ranch dressing mix
  • au jus gravy mix
  • butter
  • jarred pepperoncini peppers

All of this comes together to make the tastiest, tenderest, most delicious pot roast ever.


This style of recipe is one of my favorites because it’s so easy. It’s a great dump and go kind of recipe. All you do is:

  • Place the chuck roast in the bottom of your crock pot.
  • Sprinkle the ranch and au jus mixes over the top of the roast.
  • Add the butter and pepperoncini peppers.
  • Place the lid on top and cook over low heat for 8 hours or more.

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!


I get this question all the time! All you need to do is add your ingredients to your Instant Pot, add about 1 cup of beef broth, then cook over manual high pressure for one hour. Let the pressure release naturally and you are good to go.

NOW, having said all of that, I MUCH prefer to make my roast in the crockpot. The flavors and texture are just better overall in my opinion.


Yes! If you’re following a Keto plan, you are in luck! This recipe is very low in carbs, so it will fit right in with your diet. My one suggestion would be to serve it with some delicious low carb sides like mashed cauliflower, cauliflower rice, or garlic roasted asparagus.

What Ingredients Do You Need For a Mississippi Pot Roast?

My family said it was the best roast that they have ever had and asked me to make it again for a dinner party that weekend. Everyone just raved about it and asked me for the recipe. They were shocked when I told them what I used for the recipe. It’s just too simple not to make!

Do I need to use a whole stick of butter?

Don’t be scared about the stick of butter, this roast makes its own amazing gravy, so serve it over your favorite mashed potatoes. With just a few simple ingredients, you will find it to be so easy and mouthwatering.

This is what you need to make this yummy roast: 3-pound chuck roast, Olive oil, 1 packet Ranch Dressing Mix, 1 packet Au Jus mix, pepperoncini peppers, and butter.

This style of the recipe is one of my favorites because it’s so easy. Seriously doesn’t get any easier than this friends!! Just set it and forget it for an incredible roast dinner. This is what you need to do:

  • Place the chuck roast in the bottom of your crockpot. ( I browned mine first, but if you are short of time, just skip that step)
  • Sprinkle the ranch and au jus mixes over the top of the roast.
  • Add the stick of butter and pepperoncini peppers.
  • Place the lid on top and cook over low heat for 8 hours or more.

In a hot skillet, add olive oil.

Season the beef roast with pepper and sear in a hot skillet for a couple of minutes. NOTE: Readers have asked if it is important to sear the roast first before placing it in a slow cooker. It isn’t necessary, but if you have a couple of extra minutes, I think it adds a lot more flavor to the roast.

Turn the roast over after a couple of minutes. Sear the other side. Look at how brown and delicious that sear is, it really adds to the flavor.

Take out 8 peppers from the jar. Place them in the slow cooker. These peppers are not spicy, but they add a lot of flavors.

Can you cook Mississippi Pot Roast on high?

No. Absolutely not. The meat comes out so tender and buttery by cooking it low and slow in the crock pot. Cooking it too quickly will result in a tough cut of meat that does not shred easily.

Do I have to use packet seasonings?

Of course not! Try making your own HOMEMADE RANCH SEASONING and your own HOMEMADE DRY ONION SOUP MIX.

Can I use margarine instead of real butter?

It’s not recommended. The butter adds a lot of flavor to this. Margarine is basically oil. Use the real stuff here.

What can I serve with pot roast?

I love Mississippi Pot Roast served with my MILLION DOLLAR MASHED POTATOES. The flavors go perfectly with each other. And you gotta have some BUTTER DIP BISCUITS.

Why is Mississippi Pot Roast called that?

The woman who is thought to be the original creator of the recipe was from Mississippi.

Can you freeze Mississippi Pot Roast?

Leftover can be frozen. Just place in a freezer safe bag and remove all of the air. It will keep frozen for up to 2 months.

Can I use another cut of meat?

A sirloin tip or rump roast will work. You want a cut of meat that will shred after it is finished cooking.
