DO be smart, use your head, always think OPSEC when using texts, email, phone, and social media, and watch this video: "Importance of Navy OPSEC."

Crock Pot Mississippi Pot Roast

Probably the most popular pot roast recipe around it the Mississippi Pot Roast. It is the quintessential “Dump and Start” Crock Pot recipe. With so much amazing flavor, this Crock Pot Mississippi Pot Roast is a family favorite.

Course Dinner

Cuisine American

Keyword slow cooker Mississippi pot roast

Prep Time 10 minutes

Cook Time 8 hours

Total Time 8 hours 10 minutes

Servings 4 - 8


  • 3-6 lb Chuck Roast
  • 1/2-1 cup Pepperoncini Juice (from the jar) More if you want more “kick”…
  • 1 (1 oz) Packet of Dry Ranch Dressing Mix
  • 1 (1 oz) Packet of Au Jus (or brown gravy mix). I add up to 2 tablespoons Better Than Bouillon Beef with about ½ cup water vs. the gravy mix
  • 1 Stick of Butter
  • Pepperoncini’s (from jarred)… I do not measure & yes, I also used the pre-sliced ones


  1. Place the chuck roast in the crock pot.
  2. Pour the pepperoncini juice from the jar over the roast.
  3. Sprinkle the Ranch powder over the roast.
  4. Sprinkle the Au Jus powder over the roast.
  5. Place the stick of butter on top of the roast.
  6. Scatter the pepperoncini’s over the roast.
  7. Place the lid on the crock pot and set on Low for 8-9 hours, or High for 4-6 hours. Cook time will depend on how big the roast is. I often cut larger roasts in half for more even cooking.  My crockpot timer (if I remember to set it) will switch to keep warm after 8 hours as I am usually gone 12 hours or so before returning home.
  8. When the roast is done it will be so tender it will want to fall apart. At that point you can turn off the crockpot.
  9. Shred the meat using two forks. Some people use a turkey baster to remove the drippings to a fat separator.  I do not.
  10. If you remove the drippings pour back in as much of the drippings as you like. That juice has a lot of flavor, so don't be shy with it. Plus you could also make a gravy with it.
  11. Serve over mashed potatoes, rice, or even noodles/zoodles.
