I love a simple dinner that just happens to be delicious. Mississippi pot roast is tender, flavorful, and no fuss. With just five ingredients, it can’t be any easier. Place everything in the crock pot and walk away for eight hours. It’s that easy. Make some mashed potatoes to go along with the wonderful gravy that results from meat, butter, and au jus cooking all day. Dinner is served.
The pepperoncinis add a nice, yet subtle, flavor. I like to add some of the pepperoncini juice to the slow cooker, but you don’t have to. Ranch dressing and au jus make the roast so tasty. If you want a super easy and super flavorful roast, give Mississippi pot roast a try. My family loves this recipe and I think you will too.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Matthew 5:6
