Mississippi Roast
Source: Table for Two, originally Fake Ginger

1 3-lb. chuck roast
1 (1 oz.) packet dry ranch seasoning mix
1 (1 oz.) packet dry au jus gravy mix
6 tbsp. unsalted butter
1/4 cup water
6-7 pepperoncini peppers

In a slow cooker, add the water and then place the chuck roast on top. Sprinkle the ranch seasoning mix over top of the roast, then sprinkle the au jus gravy mix on top of that. Place the butter on top of the roast. Place the peppers around the sides of the roast.

Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. Using two large meat forks, shred the meat and serve topped with the au jus gravy drippings.

If you would like to serve these with carrots & or potatoes, add them to the slow cooker with 2-3 hours left on the cooking for the roast.

  1. I LOVE Mississippi ROAST, I’ve NEVER ADDED water TO MINE WHEN I’ve MADE IT IN THE PAST. I’m wanting TO TRY Mississippi CHICKEN NEXT TIME IN THE crockpot

    Is it still considered Mississippi roast if it doesn’t include the peppers? I cannot handle any kind of heat, although I wish I could! It looks delightful!
