My co-worker shared this roast recipe with me and I almost laughed as I saw the directions for this meal. How can there be no prep, no mixing, nothing? Just place the roast in the crock pot and then add the other ingredients? It sounded too good to be true.
But for once, it WAS true! It was sooo good! And obviously I’m sold on how easy this recipe is as well. No culinary skill required, which is always a plus. Serve this over some mashed potatoes and you’ve got yourself a hearty meal!
The recipe calls for it to cook on low for 8 hours, but I’ve cooked it on high for four hours and shifted it down to low for a half hour and mine turned out great. So if you forget to throw it until you’ve past the 8-hour mark, don’t worry! Just check to make sure the roast is cooked thoroughly.
Crock Pot Mississippi Roast
- 3 lb chuck roast
- 1 packet dry ranch seasoning mix like Hidden Valley
- 1 packet dry au jus gravy mix
- 6 TBSP butter
- 1/4 cup water
- 5 pepperoncini
Add 1/4 cup of water into the slow cooker. Place chuck roast on top of water.
Sprinkle the dry ranch seasoning mix on top of the roast then sprinkle the dry au jus mix on top. Then place the stick of 6 TSP of butter on top of the roast. And finally add the pepperoncini around the roast.
Cook on low for 8 hours. Shred and serve with gravy.
(can also serve with mashed potatoes. And I mean the instant kind. Nobody got time to peel potatoes.)
