This Mississippi pot roast recipe is so easy and made with only 4 ingredients! Dump everything into your crockpot and enjoy hands-free cooking. This juicy roast is bursting with flavor and goes perfectly with Instant Pot mashed potatoes and pan-roasted broccoli.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 34 lbs Chuck Roast
  • Packet of Dry Ranch Dressing Mix (or use 1/4 cup homemade ranch seasoning)
  • Packet of Au Jus Gravy Mix (easy substitute is in the actual recipe below)
  • Jar of Pepperoncini Peppers

Instructions

  1. Place the roast in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  2. Sprinkle the two packets of seasoning over the roast (for homemade Au Jus, just substitute 2 Tbsp granulated onion and 2 Tbsp cornstarch for the au jus packet).
  3. Sprinkle the pepperoncini peppers over the roast – there’s no need to stir.
  4. Cook on LOW for 10 hours.
  5. Shred the beef with two forks and serve!

Notes

  • For homemade Au Jus, just substitute 2 Tbsp granulated onion and 2 Tbsp cornstarch for the au jus packet.
  • You do NOT need to saute the roast over medium-high heat in olive oil first, nor do you need to add a cup of beef broth to the slow cooker. Add just the meat – the slow cooker will create the juice for you!
  • You can use whole pepperoncini or sliced pepperoncinis. I prefer sliced, that way you get little pieces of pepper in every bite!
