This Crockpot Mississippi pot roast is a big hit at our house. My husband always asks for seconds when I serve it.
Slow Cooker Mississippi Pot Roast for the Perfect Family Dinner
And then he wants leftovers for lunch the next day. That’s a big deal because he gets tired of the same thing over and over.
We have several dinners that we keep going back to as our favorites, and this is one of them. Another dinner we enjoy is this Parmesan pesto tilapia that is so good your eyes will roll back.
Now back to the Mississippi pot roast. Another thing I like about this dish is that it’s versatile. In fact, you can do quite a few things with it.
The last time I cooked it I served it over mashed potatoes with a side of green beans. Then the next day, I wrapped it in a tortilla with a side of salsa.
You can add whatever sauce you like to change the flavor. For example, barbecue sauce and a steamed or toasted bun give you flavor that would rival any smokehouse.
Crockpot Mississippi Pot Roast Ingredients
Of course, you’ll need a roast. So I used a 2-pound roast that I picked up at Publix.
The other ingredients are onion soup mix, ranch dressing mix, butter, pepperoncini peppers, and a tiny bit of water.
You can add other seasonings, but it’s not necessary. It’s so good as it is.

How to Make Crockpot Mississippi Pot Roast
I always spray the inside of the slow cooker pot before I use it because it makes cleanup easy.
Position the roast in the center of the pot. Sprinkle the onion soup and ranch dressing mix over the roast.
Place the stick of butter smack dab in the center on top of the roast. It will drizzle down the meat as it cooks, adding a deliciously rich flavor.
Add the pepperoncini peppers and water to the pot. Then put the lid on and cook it until the roast is fork tender.
I used two forks to shred it. But if you have meat-shredding claws, use those.
Give the contents of the pot a good stir to make sure all of the deliciousness is evenly distributed.
Serve your Mississippi pot roast on mashed potatoes, rice, or a bun. No matter how you eat it, you’ll love the rich flavor of this dish.
We’re such foodies around here that we have too many favorites to name. But I’ll list a few more to give you some ideas.
For a more traditional roast, try this delicious oven baked pot roast recipe. The flavors just might remind you of your childhood.
This creamed spinach is delicious, and from what I’ve heard it’s a big hit with a lot of folks. You should also try these delightful roasted cabbage steaks. Roasting brings out the sweetness of vegetables.
