Crockpot Recipe: Mississippi Roast


Crockpot Recipe: Mississippi Roast

If all recipes could be this easy and delicious. If you can place ingredients in a crockpot- you can make this amazing roast. It is fabulous and may just be my husbands new fave!


What You Need:

2lbs- 4 lbs Chuck Roast (I always use 2)

1 Envelope of Ranch Dressing Mix

1Envelope of Au Jus Mix

1 Stick of Butter

1/2 Jar of Peperoncini Peppers (or to taste)

You do not need any water for this recipe.



Just add the Roast to the bottom of your crockpot. Then add the ranch dressing mix, au jus mix, stick of butter and peppers. Cover and set the Crockpot on low for 8 hours. Let the magic happen.

A note….the original recipe called for salt and pepper. I did add additional salt the first time I made this, but I find that this roast is highly seasoned without the s&p. I now leave it out and I think it is better this way.



It is so so so good. I just serve with soft white bread.

    Great recipe! I made mine today and the house smelled so good when I came home from work. My husband and I really loved it, BUT it was way too salty. Now I have a lot for left overs. Do you have any suggestions on what I might do to offset the saltiness? Thanks much!

    This looks amazing but I have a question. What do you do with the juice/fat from the crock pot? My roast is a little fatty looking and I’m sure it will produce a lot of fat. I usually put the juice from my roasts in a fat separator and discard the fat, but in this recipe, that means I’ll be losing the butter too! TIA! And Thanks for the recipe!

    This is a fantastic dish! My family loves it. I’m wanting to try it in my oven…do you have suggestions to adjusting the recipe for oven use?
