Mississippi Pot Roast is a family favorite! Chuck roast mixed with ranch dressing mix, onion soup mix, butter, and peperoncini peppers.
Mississippi Pot Roast is one of our top 5 favorite crockpot recipes. Every fork-full is tender and flavorful. I was a little skeptical at first, thinking it would be hard to top mama's traditional roast, but I'm a huge fan and I don't think I will ever make pot roast any other way now! The meat comes out so buttery and incredibly delicious.
What you'll need:
*sirloin or rump roast work too
Ranch dressing mix
Onion soup mix
Au jus gravy mix
How to make it:
First, season your roast with seasoning salt.
Next, heat your oil in a skillet. Add oil to hot skillet. You want it really hot to brown or "sear" the beef quickly. Using tongs, flip the meat over and sear all sides. *Note this step is optional, however, it does help to seal in the flavor of the meat.
Now, transfer meat to slow cooker. Sprinkle packets of dry ranch dressing, gravy, and onion soup mixes over the roast. Cut up the stick of butter and place along the top. Lastly, place peppers on and around the roast.
Cook on high for the first hours. Then turn down to low and allow it to cook 6 hours.
Serve over mashed potatoes or rice.
Your house will smell AMAZING as it cooks!
