Mississippi Pot Roast is the best and easiest pot roast you’ll ever make! Just five simple ingredients in your crockpot and dinner will be ready with the most delicious pot roast you’ve ever had!


olive oil

chuck roast

au jus gravy mix

ranch dressing mix

salted butter

peperoncini peppers

This is one of those meals that my entire crew inhales and is a big family favorite. If you have any leftover (which is rare at our house), it makes the most delicious sandwiches!

The amazing thing about putting a pot roast into your crockpot is that you are able to use an inexpensive cut of meat. I typically will do a chuck roast or a pot roast for this recipe.

When choosing a piece of meat, look for one that doesn’t look super fatty. There is nothing worse than spending all day cooking a roast to find out that it’s mainly a fatty piece of meat.

I recommend using your crockpot on low for 8 hours. This will make your inexpensive cut of meat fall apart with a fork and tender.

The Best Setting to Cook the Pot Roast On

If you’re in a pinch, you can swap out a cup of beef broth  for the au jus gravy mix. It won’t have the same amount of flavor. But it will still be tasty!
