Mississippi Pot Roast

My friend Lee is the Queen of Crock Pots. 9 times out of 10, if I ask her what her family is having for any given weeknight dinner or Sunday lunch after church, she’s put something in her crock pot. She’s my hero haha and I mean… can you blame her? There’s so many delicious and easy crock pot recipes these days, I just want to try them all!

I, too, love my crock pot, although I don’t use it nearly as often as I should. You may recall an incredible potato soup recipe I shared on the blog a few weeks ago? I can’t wait to make it again when it gets colder!

I remembered Lee telling me about this Mississippi Pot Roast she had made sometime last year, and when I saw pot roasts at a deal that was too good to pass up at Aldi (gah… I love Aldi), I asked her to send me the recipe.

This recipe actually has a really cool story behind it, and you can read all about it here.

It is hands-down, one of the most delicious pot roasts I’ve ever had (second only to my Momma’s). It is packed with flavor (thanks to the pepperoncinis) and the meat will literally melt in your mouth.


  • 1 pack of ranch dressing seasoning mix
  • 1 pack of au jus gravy mix
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 6 pepperoncinis
  • a chuck roast (mine was about 2 lbs.)


  • Place chuck roast in crock pot and sprinkle ranch dressing mix and au jus gravy mix over it.
  • Place a stick of butter on top and throw in 6 pepperoncinis.
  • Cook on low 6-8 hours.
  • Pull meat apart and serve over white rice or with mashed potatoes and green beans or collards. YUM!

It was so good, I forgot to take a picture of the finished product. But holy cow…. if you make this, it’s sure to become one of your family’s favorites!
