Mississippi Pot Roast Recipe
This is seriously one of the easiest pot roast recipes you can make in your slow cooker.
It’s one of those dump it in, and turn it on recipes……a true gift for the busy household. It honestly takes me about 3 minutes to prep this recipe, I turn it on and walk away, only to come back to a delicious hunk of meat to be used in many ways. My favorite kind of slow cooker recipe.
Sorta like my Crockpot Copycat Cafe Rio Chicken. I’ll make that up and use it all week long in salads, burritos, burrito rice bowls. It’s another life saver. This recipe is the same, except it doesn’t last as long.
Now if you’re a purist, this crock pot Mississippi Pot Roast recipe is NOT for you. Look away.
This isn’t a super healthy meal…… but neither is the Taco Bell you pick up in a pinch. At least you know this is real meat.

What sides go with a pot roast?
I shredded the roast and served it on top of baked potatoes, added broccoli and called it dinner.
Mashed potatoes are always a popular side with any beef roast, too.

How to Make Mississippi Pot Roast in a Slow Cooker
- 1 Beef Roast - Regular size. I buy whatever is in the store and usually one with the string around it.

- 5-10 peperoncini peppers
- ¼ cup peperoncini juice
- Place your roast in your slow cooker

- Place peperoncini's around the roast and on top.
- Pour juice over the roast.

- If you don't have as much time, I've cooked on High for 3 hours, then turned it to LOW for an hour or so and it turned out fine.
